Prayer exercise series [1] Praying with the body

Prayer is not just about our words. We need to engage with prayer in our totality – head and heart, body and spirit, word and action.

These prayer exercises, put together by Ian Adams, CMS mission spirituality adviser, put together words and action, mixing inner stillness with outer movement.
