A 5-week course introducing students to Christian prayer and the way it has been shaped and influenced by the Scriptures, Christian theology and worldly experiences. 

This 5-week course will examine the topic of Christian prayer from a biblical, historical, theological and liturgical perspective and will aim to uncover what happens when a person prays. Beginning by looking at the role of prayer in both the Old and New Testaments, the course will then trace the interweaving of prayer and doctrine throughout Church history, considering how what we pray and what we believe are intimately connected. Different 'types' of prayers will also be considered as well as an exploration as to how prayer intersects with some key questions of our modern day. 

Please note that this course is not a 'hands on' prayer session, rather a thoughtful discussion about prayer. 

This course can be taken as part of the Certificate in Theology
