Welcome to the Pray More Healing Retreat!

We invite you to join us for the next few weeks to reflect on God’s faithful love and presence in your life, and learn how to move from a place of pain and fear to a place of peace and faith. 

St. John Paul II said that suffering is almost inseparable from man’s earthly existence. At times, suffering can lead you closer to Christ. And at other times, it can seem to lead you further away from Him. We created this retreat to help steer you closer back to Him, who is the divine healer.

As a part of this retreat, you will receive access to 19 different talks on healing. Some of them are about healing from specific problems – things like loss, grief, emotional pain — pain caused by others. Some are about healing the wounds of our heart, and learning our worth and dignity. Others are about God’s faithfulness in the darkest of times and how to practically pursue healing. Lastly, we also have a few talks about what to do when you don’t receive the healing you’ve been praying for and working towards.

You can participate in this retreat at your own pace. Some of the talks are 10 minutes long, and others are closer to 20. You will be able to watch them whenever you have the time, or to download them and listen to them even while you’re on-the-go. We also created a short study guide to go with each talk.

We hope the Pray More Healing Retreat will bring you closer to God’s healing love — wherever you are, and whenever you have the time.

Once you  register, we will send all the presentations to your email for you to enjoy :)  

God bless you!
