“Prayer is not asking. Prayer is putting oneself in the hands of God, at His disposition, and listening to His voice in the depth of our hearts.”


Mother Teresa

In 2019, Camp Hill UMC launched a new Discipleship Cycle that includes the area of discovery. We believe that it is vital in every season to discover how God’s story transforms our story through an ongoing exploration of scripture, accountable relationships, and life-giving traditions. And so, throughout our J-Term of preaching and teaching, we are offering a course that encourages each of us to explore scripture together with others who are also seeking to grow in how we follow Jesus. We believe that following Jesus requires a deeper relationship than mere niceties—that it requires kindness, trust, conviction, intentionality, and more. And so, we will be exploring a long-held tradition of the historic church of creating a personal rule of life that guides our daily growth and engagement with the world. We welcome you Wednesday nights at 6:00 pm in the Fellowship Hall on the journey!


Ideas for prayer are shared from this “Stop Being Nice” Bible Study Class for each day of February. Feel free to add additional prayers that come to your mind and heart for people and situations in our local church, The United Methodist Church, the global church, and the wider world.
