This is a free of charge Course on Prayer (links are on their way..)
Prayer is one of the main disciplines of Christian spirituality or faith practice. It was one of the four practices that the first Christians in Jerusalem held on to. In Acts chapter 2 we read, “They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.”
In this course we will explore how to pray and the meaning of prayer. We have three sessions. For each we have recorded an oral presentation – even though it is quite primitive technically seen – and you will also find the manuscript for the oral presentation. In addition you will find two handouts for each session containing practical exercises.
Christfulness is a life with Jesus Christ. He is God-with-us. Christfulness is the experience of God’s fullness (grace, love, righteousness, truth) as given to the Church in Christ. Christfulness is an invitation to share Christ’s relationship with God, our heavenly Father. Thus, Jesus Christ invites us to pray with him as he prays for us.
The Lord’s prayer is an instruction to pray. You may pray for yourself. You may pray it together with other people, or you may use it praying on behalf of others. You’ll find a suggestion for this here: The Lord’s Prayer as intersession
Sometimes staff and volunteers in our communities are overloaded with work, feel stress and are about to burn out. Also church members may suffer from stress in their daily lives.
Maybe it’s time to take a pause, to relax in the presence of the Lord, and to find oneself as a loved and appreciated child of God.

Christfulness® is an expression of faith, but Christfulness is also an interpretation of life with roots in the Bible and Christian theology. In this combination of practice and teaching, Christfulness is also experience. Therefore, the author of Christfulness, Ole Skjerbæk Madsen, sometimes describes Christfulness as the practice that leads to the experience of us being in Christ and of Christ being in us: ”I want to describe a process that moves from an individual experience to a vision of the redemption of mankind and the healing of our planet – in a constant interaction between the individual and the relational, the personal and the universal.” For many years Ole Skjerbæk Madsen has been a Missions Pastor in Areopagos and the leader of In the Master’s Light, who wants to build bridges between the church and people who are curious about spirituality. After his retirement, Ole Skjerbæk Madsen served for 2 years as a Missions Pastor at Tao Fong Shan Christian Centre in Hong Kong.< Less
