Do you pray, or are you drawn to prayer?

Or maybe you used to pray, but you now feel disillusioned because it didn’t seem to “work” when your prayers went unanswered.

Or perhaps you are interested in developing a prayer practice but aren’t sure and have a lot of questions including, Is prayer effective? Do I actually need to pray?

And really, What Is Prayer?

Join Rev. Michael B. Beckwith and a dynamic lineup of stellar teachers for the free online Masterclass, What Is Prayer? Friday, March 18th at 5:30pm PT and learn about the mystical, empowering, and transformative power of prayer!

At this free online event you will:

• Discover what happens when you pray

• Learn how prayer connects you to the Divine

• Understand how prayer changes the way you see yourself and the world

• Hear personal testimonies of healing and transformation through prayer

• Find out everything you’ve always wanted to know about the spiritual technology of prayer, but maybe were afraid to ask!

This Masterclass redefines prayer in an empowering way.  As Rev. Michael teaches, prayer is not the begging or beseeching a reluctant deity to give you something. Prayer is touching Reality without seeking to get anything. It affirms what already is, and anchors absolute Truth through spiritual principle and law.

This free interactive Masterclass also features a live Q&A, so take advantage of this opportunity to learn more about the effective power of prayer!

So, how do we meet and move through these seemingly dark, unsteady, and even radical times?
