In this Bible study guide we will be inspired mostly by a single verse in Genesis. In chapter 28, we’re told that Jacob woke up after having an amazing dream and said, “Surely the LORD is in this place—and I did not know it!” (28:16). Jacob had experienced God’s presence but was unaware of this glorious fact until afterwards.

One cannot think about the presence of God without remembering the classic Christian book The Practice of the Presence of God.

As we discuss Brother Lawrence, this study guide offers some reflections based on Jacob’s experience of God’s presence. alongside some inspiration from excerpts from The Practice of the Presence of God. This will help us to think creatively about how, like Jacob, we might discover and delight in God’s surprising presence in our workplaces.
