About Encounter prayer:

The Encounter Prayer course is a free resource for prison chaplains and those who work in prisons that enables and equips those in prison to develop their prayer lives.

How does it work?

Each of the six sessions in Encounter Prayer is designed to take prisoners on a journey to develop their prayer life. The course can be run over six weeks, but is also adaptable to your needs.

Each session has a combination of whole-group teaching and small group discussion. We recommend a number of helpers in each session to facilitate the small groups. There are also downloadable participant notes for each session. 

What are the sessions?

Each session of the Encounter Prayer course covers a different element of prayer:

  1. Why Pray?
  2. Growing in Prayer
  3. Who is God?
  4. The Lord’s Prayer
  5. Persevering in Prayer
  6. Listening to God

How much is Encounter Prayer?
