In Volume 1 of the Ready, Set, Rest series, Alicia offers practical guidance for embarking on your first–or enhancing your hundredth–prayer retreat. The Practice of Prayer-Retreating is a booklet with 64 full-color pages in an 8.5 x 5.5  format.

The Practice of Prayer-Retreating draws upon over twenty years of experience in developing this underestimated discipline. Each short chapter includes practical as well as inspirational content as concludes with a reflective questions and journaling space.

Chapter titles include The Why, Working to Rest, Honest Beginnings, Dates and Spaces, Packing to Go, and Waiting.

Sample journaling prompts include:

  • List any “what ifs” you are bringing into your prayer-retreating adventure.
  • Consider the connection between repentance and rest. In what ways might avoiding one affect the other?
  • Honestly journal any thoughts about what you feel would make your retreat “successful.” Then invest a few minutes asking God if He agrees.

This booklet is ideal for individual or group use. Churches and organizations may want to gift their tribes with a copy to encourage the discovery of this powerful discipline.

In Mark 6.31 Jesus said, “Come away with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.” Alicia’s little booklet is offered as a guide to all who desire to say, “Yes!”

    Some people like to explore a big city for the first time by themselves. Me, I like to start out with a native: someone who knows the secret local eateries and the best spots to catch magnificent views. Someone who knows the culture and which tourist traps are over-rated.

    Taking Ready, Set, Rest on a prayer retreat is like visiting a vast, exciting place with a native. Alicia’s words guide you through the wide open spaces of retreating so that they don’t become overwhelming. Your anxieties of “what should I do now?!” Or “what if I fall asleep?” are calmed. Her guidance gives just enough structure to provide real freedom and rest. Especially helpful for people who are new to prayer retreats, but even folks familiar with prayerful solitude will find riches in these pages. I’ve used it over and over!

      You need to write a book, Heather! Of course, you’ve heard me say that before. You have a beautiful way with words. Thank you for sharing these about RSR.
