...sitting face to face with Him,I could not look Him in the eyes. I only knew His presence because I felt Him so strong. Then I felt His touch.He combed his fingers through my hair. My head hung in shame and I covered my face. How could you love me LORD?...but He does...He just does...

What a relief! Even in my rejection, my shame, my guilt, unbleief, rebellion, confusion...He still sees me as 'HIS LOVE'

thank you jesus for _____________ (everything).

thank you for those who served behind the scenes to make this thing happen! i was blessed!

A journey is something that moves. It continues. It doesn't stay in one place. This experience showed me that my relationship with God needs to be a journey. I need to stop living my life in this stagnant existance and fully embrance the journey God wants to take me on. God desires for each of us to become just as He is: Holy, just, pure. The journey is how we become that way. The journey is where God becomes most real to us. I am ready to go on that journey.

I have never participated in a prayer walk. I messed up some of the stations but I made it to everyone of them and I listened to the words and put myself in God's hands. I love the family relationship that I have in Calvary Temple and God knew what He
was doing when He put me here. I don't know what He has in mind for me but I'm REAL happy having it happen with Calvary Temple.

God bless you,

Very unique prayer experience. Would take some time to adjust. Definitely outside the box--in a good way.

A lot of work to set this up!

Wow!
I am so glad that I came to this prayer journey. I wasn't sure what it would be like when I came, or what God would do in my life, but He definately used this as a mile-marker in my walk with Him. He spoke some key things to me that will stick with me for a long time having to do with my relationship with Him and the future he has for me. Thanks God! You are so amazing; there aren't even words to describe you and your goodness.

I was a bit confused at first but that's not abnormal for something new, right? It took a few tracks of the CD to really get into it, but I found myself calm and relaxed, free from anxiety and emotion. After I was through the maze part and entered into worship in the sanctuary the true presence of the spirit revealed to me important life lessons. Freedom in worship is vital to everyone. Dancing for me releases something intimate and new. I danced, like I would at home in my living room and it wasn't/isn't about me. We so often say "God showed up", yet tonight I realize, God is ever present. He's an 'ever' kind of God, everloving, ever living, ever present, ever forgiving. Praise the Lord for obediant pastors and creativity.

A little too much new age style music for my tastes. Very creative. I personally got more out of track "12"...in the sanctuary. I appreciate the effort to reach out in non-traditional ways.

how, how to talk about something that took me by surprise and went so deep? it's hard to even speak right now, the presence of God is still shaking, working deeper in my spirit. Everything took me by surprise; I wasn't expecting to be disarmed by such simple stuff-- the body and blood of Christ, sand, candles, dirt. Jesus thank you for having mercy on your children, and meeting us here.
Amen.

The Lord met me in unexpected, and unusual ways! I began to sense Him afresh after the 3rd station. It was simply a matter of entering in after that. He revealed some hidden feelings of abandonment I didn't know were in me. Also He reminded me of a mandate He had given me a few years ago. I encourage everyone to experience God in a very sensory way as you traverse the path!

It was awesome, thank you to all who were involved in setting it up.
If we could all get that we are here for a reason and are created in the image of God.
We have purpose and our life here is of value.
I left wanting my life even more to be a reflection of his glory and light to this world.

has I looked into the mirror my face dissapeared! I first thought I was in darkness, but I saw closer my head had become translucent then I looked down and only my chest was visible. My heart is what he wanted to see that is what we are made of, that is what he sees that is all we leave behind----love. M.A.P

this was a heart wrenching experience when I really let God into my thoughts and let Him heal those thoughts my heart started to melt and is more pliable for the changes that the Lord wants in me. Thank you

this experience was a nice transition from what God had alread placed in me. He showed me themes through out that have been used to show me what I needed to get rid of and what truths I needed to embrace. I am now at a new place in my journey and I am excited to let God lead me.

I left my footprint in the sand and although it was my footprint no one could possibly know that it was me. The only thing certan is that someone had placed their foot into the grain.

As I stepped away I marveled at the anonyminity of it all. If the sand was the "rutter of history" as the narrator described then the imprint of my foot which God had molded at creation was His very signature.

Whatever it is that I have that might be left behind that will truly ink history's pages will be his and his alone. No face or name other then His will be read in the grains of the sand.

Hey, this is the second time I went through the prayer journey and it was awesome. Thank you, Lord, for drawing near to me through these reflections and thank you CT for pulling us into contemplative prayer like this.

It was great not only to get some time to think and pray but to be led into certain areas that have been neglected. Thanks! Anyone who has not had the chance to experiece this... take the time...Make The Time!

What a journey!! Oh my, I had time to reflect on my past, present and even my future. What legacy shall I leave when I am gone?? May the Lord help us. Thanks to all that worked so hard to put this together. I hope everyone has has a chance to come and journey. I would like to do it again.
