Contemplatio

TUESDAY’S, 5:15 AT WEST CAMPUS

Meditative Prayer at Ransom

Contemplatio is an opportunity for people to come and learn new prayer techniques in order to grow further in their relationship with Jesus and be intentional about time spent with him. At no point do you have to know what to say or do during a Contemplatio session, simply be led through a half hour prayer practice and spend time with our God. Join us for a life-changing half hour sitting with Jesus or click the button below to receive more information.

Testimonies

"My faith grew more in three hours than it did my entire life! I’m no longer suffocating in guilt, anger, loneliness and shame. Those dark feelings have been wiped away by Jesus’s perfect blood. They were replaced with absolute joy when I saw how pure and real his love is for me."

"The group setting was warm and welcoming. I felt safe to cry, speak the lies, and embrace the truth. It’s really cool to do that in a community."

"The best part of the session was seeing and hearing all the ways God confirmed what He was showing/speaking to me, through the words and verses shared through the Restore members. I walk away with no doubt in mind that He is real and that I heard from HIM."

"So glad I went through the Restore session when I did. Finally feel free of more baggage from the past. I also appreciate the tools I learned there to stay free. I will not go back! This ministry is invaluable!"

"I have seen God working in more ways than I ever have. I have been told since I entered college that you are able to have a personal relationship with God and I never really knew what that meant. I thought I was doing it wrong. I saw in the session what that actually means."

Prayer

Do you find yourself anxious or distracted? Perhaps what used to help you feel connected to God is gone, or simply isn’t fulfilling any longer. Often when our routines are disrupted or we’re at a turning point in our growth with Christ we can become consumed by emotion or uncertainty and forget our grounding in Him. Contemplative Prayer is one discipline that serves as a great way to be intentional about seeking the face of Jesus.

Tips

Below you will find resources to guide yourself through ancient and modern prayer practices. If you have any questions, or want to know more about prayer ministries at Ransom email restore@ransom.church.

TIPS FOR SUCCESS

  1. Find a quiet place to practice these alone or with a partner (bedroom/closet/deck/etc.)
  2. Go into each practice with no expectation besides to spend time with Jesus.
  3. If you find you have trouble focusing right away, start by playing a favorite worship song that helps you transition from the chaos of life to being alone with Jesus.
  4. Keep your eyes closed as much as you can and silence your phone. Avoid distractions at all costs.

practices


  1. Pray aloud and simply ask Jesus to make himself known to you in the following practice.
  2. Close your eyes and recall the line “Be still and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10). Be still, calm, peaceful, open to the presence of God.
  3. With your eyes closed, imagine that God is calling you by name. Imagine that God is actually asking, “(Your name) what do you want? Like the blind man on the road to Jericho, Jesus kindly looks you in the eyes and asks, “What do you want from me?”
  4. Give God a simple and direct answer that comes honestly from your heart. Hold that answer in your mind. If you have more than one answer, remember as many as you can. Your answer may be one word such as peace or love or help. It may be several words or a phrase such as “I want to feel your presence” or “lead me into life.” Whatever your answers, they are the foundation of your breath prayer.
  5. Select the name that you are most comfortable using to speak with God. This could be “Father,” or “Holy God” for example.
  6. Combine your answers - this will be your prayer.
  7. Breathe in the first phrase/word - the version of God’s name you are using - and breathe out the second phrase/word - your request or need.
  8. Continue in this practice for the next few minutes. We suggest setting a timer on your phone for at least 2-3 minutes.

TIP: If you revisit this practice, challenge yourself to go for longer and longer periods of time.
