Weekend Prayer Retreat

We encourage serious intercessors to go on retreat two or three times per year. You will find it refreshing. Finding adequate time to get away is always a chore. Many jobs allow for personal days or vacation days which are ideal for this. We suggest taking a personal day two or three times a year on Fridays to give yourself the most amount of time to pray. If it is impossible to get Friday off you may want to do a retreat beginning Sunday night through Monday, taking Monday off. Otherwise a weekend beginning on a Saturday morning through Sunday night might be best.

This is my personal style for an ordered and disciplined time of extended prayer. There will be some who find it difficult or unrewarding to be so disciplined. In that case you need to develop your own style. Just be sure that it keeps you praying.
