Con Tú Primer Amor: Embracing Your First Love


Con Tú Primer Amor: Embracing Your First Love 

Prayer is more than an appeal to God; it is a way of resting in the heart of the Lord. This prayer guide explores the lives of five ancient biblical mentors who will show us how to live a life of prayer and intimacy with the Lord. What might Mary Magdalene, King David, a Shulamite woman, John the disciple, and Mary and Martha show us about cultivating a posture of prayer in our lives and in community? Come and see how prayer can transform lives.
