A Prayer Workshop
PLW (Prayer and Life Workshops) is a service which helps participants to learn and deepen skills in the art of prayer. The learning has a highly experimental character, like a workshop: by praying the participants learn to pray.
A Life Workshop
By means of a woven pattern of meditations on the Word, intensive prayer, community reflection and silencing exercises, the participants overcome, step by step, their inner anguishes and anxieties, fears and sadness.
A Limited Service
The workshop does not create ecclesiastic groups nor prayer communities. It only offers a limited and humble service: teaching people to pray and to live a Christian life.
An Open Attendance
People who attend the Workshop are simple Christians, catechists, Pastoral agents, militants of diverse Christian groups, Protestants from different denominations.
Welcome to Prayer and Life Workshops Philippines, we bring a new form of EVANGELIZATION closer to you.
The Prayer and Life Workshops are a new form of EVANGELIZATION; alive and with a greater positive vision than what has previously been available. It is a more vibrant and provides a vivid presentation of Jesus; a true adaptation to the needs of our present society. Its emphasis is on love transforming power rather than on fear and punishment. That is why unequivocally we say that Prayer and Life Workshops is the answer to today’s world.
You learn to pray.
The Workshop provides you the opportunity to learn and deepen your skills in the art of prayer. One learns to enter in a personal relationship with the Lord, through different praying methods, from the first steps of simple prayer to the heights of contemplation.
You learn to live.
Experience a deep living in faith and surrender to God’s will, being filled with a peace that surpasses all understanding. You learn to overcome, step by step, your inner anguishes and anxieties, fears and sadness. Learn to overcome complexes, traumas, controlling your nerves, emotional stability and experience the joy of living.
Facilitated by lay people.
Most of the Guides (workshop facilitators) are lay people and all the members of the Coordinating teams are lay people who have experienced the same challenges and struggles in prayer and day to day lives — but they have learned to practice the workshops in its entirety to help others learn to pray and learn to live.
