Our Create & Refresh weekends in the Southern Highlands provide a chance to reflect, relax and be creative. Elizabeth Spencer reviews the Create & Refresh weekend on 7-9 April, which focused on prayer:
We are often too busy to stop and be still before God, to listen to him and to pray. This weekend retreat provided wonderful opportunities to be creative with our gifts and time, and to be truly refreshed in prayer, quietness and reflection.
Di Morgan offered many tools to help our prayer life and reminded us to boldly and freely approach the throne room of God in prayer. It was also comforting to hear that struggling in prayer is a common problem, and that God calls us to keep persevering and trusting in him.
God used the weekend to free me from some long-standing road blocks in my Christian walk. I came home feeling liberated and joyful, and better equipped to continue the journey.
