(day-use Prayer Cabin)

The word, Poustinia, is a German word that literally means desert, but it is more commonly used to describe a secluded space where one encounters God in silence. A place to remove every distraction hit the emergency stop button in our lives, and slow down. We like to think of it as a place to find streams in the desert.

Addictions to noise, busyness, work projects, and people-pleasing can wear us down more than we realize. Our spirit cries out to slow the pace and reconnect with the heart of God.

It’s more than a place to pray, it’s a space to listen. Being addicted to noise, even if it’s good noise, we’ve become afraid of silence. Yet it’s in the silence that we hear God speak.

The Poustinia is a spiritual retreat, a time to wait on the Lord.  It is meant for day use, but if you’d like a single-person overnight stay, please inquire.

Our little prayer cabin is a one-room log cabin perched on the highest point of our property. Heated by the wood-burning stove, and lit by solar power for those rare times that the sun isn’t sufficient, with a porta-potty out back, it is a more rustic experience.  Snuggle up in the rocking chair next to the mini wood stove, positioned in front of the all-glass front door with a framed view of Pikes Peak. Linger on the tiny front porch that provides a view that few experience.

The instant you put your hand on the door, you’ll know you’re in a special place. It’s a space that invites you to soak in the powerful presence of God and allow your body, soul, and spirit to be refreshed in His company.

Dedicate a time away with your Lord and respond to His invitation to draw closer and deeper.
