"Prayer Practices for Anxious Times"

Virtual Prayer Retreat

March 6, 2021

In this season of fear, uncertainty, and social distancing,

Visual Faith™ Ministry invites you to find rest with God. 

"Abide: Prayer Practices for Anxious Times",

our first ever Virtual Prayer Retreat. Connect with speakers 

and visual faith practices that will guide you as you walk 

in relationship with Jesus, your Savior.

Are you tired? Worn out?

Is it just too much?

Are you stressed and anxious?

We have heard your cry for help,

during this time of isolation

you are not alone.

“Come to me, all you who

are weary and burdened,

and I will give you rest”

Matt 11:28

We are responding with tools to help bring the HOPE of Jesus right where you are. Visual Faith™ Ministry leaders and coaches have come together to give you encouragement in our one-day virtual prayer retreat.

It will be a day of abiding with God and one another as we hear, see, and

experience prayer practices that

can be done in your personal

devotional life, with your family, or in the larger context of a Christian community.

Twelve Visual Faith™ Ministry coaches and leaders will introduce you to a variety of prayer practices that are achievable and grace-filled.

These hands-on practices become "faith tools" that prove significant to centering yourself in the midst of the distractions

of our noisy, busy,

media-driven lives.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is an online prayer retreat?

You'll find that the Abide Virtual Prayer Retreat is a little different from other retreats. Our "prayer practice tools" are based on shared experience and applied educational research with positive responses from many who have struggled-which is why we made it accessible to everyone! But you must claim your ticket NOW because each session will be available for free for JUST 1 Day; then it will be locked up in the Virtual Retreat vault. 

Is this retreat a good fit for me?

Whether you have a brand new prayer life or have been a prayer warrior for years, you are sure to be challenged, encouraged, and inspired with practices that are simple, doable, and grace-filled.  

What if I can't attend all the sessions in one day?

While your free ticket allows you to watch the retreat sessions for 24 hours (8:30 am EST March 6 - 8:30 am EST March 7), you may want more time than that. Thankfully we have two All-Access Pass options. Upgrade to an All-Access Pass-Plus for $36 or All-Access Pass-the Works for $63.

How do I access the conference videos? 

Sign up for the conference today, then watch your inbox. We'll email you your member access to watch the sessions on March 6. Watch on any device with a strong internet connection. 

Interested in Group Pricing?

For churches who would like to encourage their members to participate in the Abide Virtual Prayer Retreat, contact Diane Marra for information about group pricing.  dianemarra51@gmail.com

I don't live in the US. Can I still join in?

Absolutely! You'll have 24 hours to watch each session for free, so you can watch whenever makes most sense for you. As long as you have a reliable internet connection, you're good to go!
