A Marriage Prayer Retreat

A married couple that regularly prays—both alone and together—is best positioned to have a deeply fulfilling, blessed and wonderful marriage. Glen Eyrie is the perfect setting to come to as a couple and learn and grow in your prayer life. You’ll enjoy great sessions, beautiful grounds, wonderful food, and time together, with God. You and your marriage will be renewed and refreshed!

Closer is designed to intentionally guide you through:

  • individual time alone in prayer
  • time together as a couple in prayer
  • understanding the ministry of prayer
The format is one of simplicity in making prayer as natural and necessary as breathing  . . . experiencing the joy of connecting with God and each other on a more personal level. Tools are given that will aid in seeking and hearing the Lord as a couple for direction. Glen Eyrie gives a beautiful, serene setting to walk through a life-changing weekend.

Your Retreat leaders: and Leah Green, directors and facilitators of Marriage Getaways & Closer at Glen Eyrie, have been married for 50 years and are blessed with four children and eleven grandchildren. In October 2005, Terry & Leah moved to Colorado Springs as full-time Navigator staff serving at Glen Eyrie. The Greens have been Associate Staff with The Navigators since 1995, laboring in the fields of Military and Community & Church Discipleship Ministries. Twenty years prior to coming to Glen Eyrie, Terry & Leah worked together in the insurance business in Alamogordo, NM. Discipleship is their heartbeat, and they rejoice in this new season and fresh direction.

I felt encouraged (exhorted in the good sense) to have a regular/daily time of sharing what we are learning from God as a couple. We have done it sporadically but the example of Terry and Leah and their teaching regarding growing in this area has been a challenge for me and I know for my wife as well.

God has opened new pathways for Barb and I to walk together to get closer to Him. As we go deeper into Scripture and prayer, learning more about and from God, our love for each other grows.

I was looking forward to a weekend away with my husband that focused on praying and being more spiritually connected. That happened. Most of our weekend was an opportunity to interact with God and each other. The teachers did a great job facilitating an environment where we could interact with God and each other. Getting to hike was a hoped for bonus!

I have just returned from a 7-month deployment to Afghanistan. This weekend was part of my wife and my reintegration process to help our coming back together from my absence due to duty. This retreat provided the perfect opportunity for us to re-connect on so many positive levels. The Lord met us, walked with us, and enriched our time together. In a word, we have been blessed.
-Jeffrey J., Colorado
It was just the right speed for me. The meetings were helpful and clear with time to apply and meditate on the concepts. Besides, aren’t you supposed to spend time with your spouse at a couples conference?
-Rik Y., Colorado
