"Thank you Tim R. for speaking into this discussion.  Satan is sooo deceptive.  Anything not purely taught in scripture is so dangerous.  The massive wave of 'spiritualism' entering the church is very scary.   Thank…"

Tim R. Temple replied to Barbara Dixon's discussion Spiritual Direction, Silence and solitude. The mystics
"Using self-hypnosis for mind-blanking is a good way to open yourself up to unclean spirits.  Our conscious mind is a natural barrier to unclean spirits.  Satan's minions must get you to suppress your mind to get in.  They can…"

"Barbara, I have enjoyed reading the devotional classics by Richard Foster. The book has excerpts of these authors you mentioned. The main reason of my desire of solitude is that I am often the victim of ‘tyranny of the urgent’- being…"

"I am also a somewhat new prayer coordinator in a church which hasn't had much of a prayer ministry at all.  Things didn't start with me, however.  Our former pastor's wife, started a weekly prayer meeting at our…"

"That's why we have this network!  God is not limited by time or place and my prayer partners and I try to discuss the problems minimally and if one is not available we leave the prayer on voicemail. If we are faithful with 2 or 3, God will…"

"Great JOhn - what an important role! Look over the groups and discussions - much here on the network to help you. Let me know if I can help you navigate the site, Phil Pray! Community Coordiantor"

John Freeze replied to Barbara Dixon's discussion How do you all get people in the congregation to seek prayer
"This is my first post here on the website.  My wife and I have just accepted the role as the first "prayer coordinators" at our church.  We have had a few meetings with our minister and are very excited.  I am sure we will…"

"Do We really Pray in Our Churches?   Thom Rainer - I sometimes wish I could have been there. The new church at Jerusalem was in its infancy. There was an unmistakable excitement and anticipation among the believers. They began to gather…"

Billie Kramme replied to Barbara Dixon's discussion How do you all get people in the congregation to seek prayer
"Barbara, I also belong to a mainline denominational church that sounds very much like yours.   We had left this denomination years ago and returned now that the pastor is an Evangelical Bible-based pastor.    I felt the Lord…"

"Hi Kimberly; you are absolutely right and it sounds like you have found ways to immerse yourself into nature where you find rest and refreshment, as well as finding God in the midst of a busy life as a single mom of three. That is where you can…"

Kimberly Arnold replied to Barbara Dixon's discussion Spiritual Direction, Silence and solitude. The mystics
"Silence, solitude, meditation and contemplative prayer - all seem to weave in and out of my day to day praying, particularly during the "night watches."  I have read many of the mystics, often stumbling over archaic sentence structure…"

David Hobbs replied to Barbara Dixon's discussion Spiritual Direction, Silence and solitude. The mystics
"Hi Barbara, I practice silence and meditation--"Be still and know that I am God," and I also practice loud proclaiming, singing and worship, in probably about 50-50 proportions. I've had a lot of powerful experiences meeting with the…"

"I am in Southern Oregon. I get an newsletter from Contemplative Prayer Outreach (I think that's the title) and I believe that I have seen notices for retreats in or around Portland, OR. Portland is about 5 1/2 hours from me. I've been…"

"Hi Jen; so great to hear from someone, thanks for your reply and interest. If you love Keating and Nouwen you are on the right 'contemplative' track; Keating more than Nouwen. Keating is actually one of our contemporary leaders, even…"

"Hi Barbara, I've not experienced a Contemplative Prayer retreat but it's something that I've wanted to experience. Cost and location seem to be a factor. I love the writings of Thomas Keating, Henry Nouwen, and others---deep thoughts…"
