How does Word of Life form students in prayer?
The Christian life is ordered toward union with God. Prayer is the means by which we lift our minds and hearts to the God who loves us. Word of Life incorporates several methods of prayer. It introduces lectio divina to children so that at a young age they can begin to have a personal experience of reading, meditating on, praying with, and listening to Scripture. It teaches children how to engage with sacred art and beauty through prayer. It also gives ample opportunities for students and families to learn the practice of mental prayer and reflection.
