I was recently pleasantly surprised to be invited by a prestigious financial institution to speak on the subject of how prayer and faith can enhance mental health. It was a wonderful privilege.
On this podcast I unpack the main elements of my talk along with exploring how money is such a helpful analogy in pointing to understanding spiritual treasure.
In particular we explore:
How faith and prayer enhance mental health as I am able to delight in God for who He is rather than what I can get out of Him.
The key to this is understanding and experiencing grace in my life.
How faith rather than being a vague and nebulous concept is actually incredibly specific. Indeed our entire global financial system is based on faith.
Why faith can only enhance mental health if it is based on something specific and reliable.
How the highest form of prayer is delight.
The problems with defining mental health.
How the Hebrew word 'shalom' conveys the highest form of mental health as complete wellbeing or multi-dimensional thriving and fulfilment.
