Prayer is none other than an expanding of our hearts in the presence of God.

— John Calvin

Spiritual Formation

The Office of Theology and Worship is readily engaged in the ministry of Spiritual Formation. In cooperation with governing bodies and other church entities, we are able to offer opportunities for experiencing and furthering the work of the Holy Spirit in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). Rather than providing a "one-size-fits-all" program, our goals in the area of spiritual formation include:

  • Publications, such as Hungryhearts, to nurture spiritual growth
  • Networks to aid communication across existing spiritual formation programs
  • Identifying and developing leadership in spiritual formation


  • Virginia, check out the Book of Common Worship. There's a section in there of prayers and scriptures for use when people are sick and after the death of a loved one that are particularly comforting. These can be terrific guides for your own heart-felt prayers of compassion in the circumstance to help you overcome any shyness in the situation. Thank you for your desire to do your best in ministering to folks in need of your obvious care. by Teresa Stricklen on 12/02/2013 at 1:37 p.m.

  • Do you have any suggestions for a book on prayers for opening meetings and also on spiritual encouragement for people in our congregation. I am becoming a deacon and need some help so I can do a good job in being compassionate to people in need.Thank you. Virginia Pleban by Virginia Pleban on 11/12/2013 at 7:49 p.m.
