The paradigm of Kavannah prayer comes from the book of 1 Samuel. The book tells a story of Hannah, a barren woman who longed for a son. Unable to have a child, mocked by her peer, anguished, and humbled, she prayed an immersive prayer, a “kavannah” kind of prayer, full of intent and devotion. Her lips moved yet she made no sound because her heart cried out loudly enough. Have you ever felt like this? In spite of her pain and bitterness, she gave the gravest concerns of her heart to God, fully trusting, fully exposed. We aspire to pray this type of prayer. We yearn for it. Through Kavannah Night, we hope to provide an environment that facilitates this type of expression. There will be praise, there will be worship, there will be movement, and there will be rest. Full devotion, full surrender - an immersive experience with God. Let’s pray.
