Come to the Forgiveness Prayer Workshop and explore the need for forgiveness and the nature of forgiveness. Come to learn the Forgiveness Prayer, a way to open to God’s healing presence and action when you are hurt, wounded or offended. The Forgiveness Prayer is a prayer in which we open to God’s grace to learn to forgive.

When the disciples asked Jesus how to pray, he taught them the Lord’s Prayer. In this prayer Jesus teaches us that forgiveness is one of the essential conditions out of which all of our prayer must proceed if it is to be acceptable to God.

The command is clear: if you are a Christian, you must forgive. But there are two very powerful, often problematic questions involved with this imperative:

How do I forgive?
What if I want to forgive but cannot?

Experience with Centering Prayer is suggested for participants.

This workshop is for those who are new to the Forgiveness Prayer and for those who want to deepen their experience of the Forgiveness Prayer.

Therese Saulnier is a long standing member of Contemplative Outreach.  She has been praying Centering Prayer for over 30 years and praying the Forgiveness Prayer for over 25 years. Therese shares her experience that before she learned the Forgiveness Prayer she really did not know how to forgive.  Therese will share the process of forgiveness and share a way to open to God’s healing presence and action in our search for forgiveness – the Forgiveness Prayer.  There will also be centering prayer periods during the workshop.
