Centering Prayer

Dear Friends,

Centering Prayer has been around for centuries as a practice of meditation to be silent and open before God as an individual or as a group. If you are new to this mode of meditation, we assure you it is very simple. Take time to sit comfortably then take slow deep breaths to relax the body and the mind.

Then use a short reading, prayer or phrase to clear your mind and enter a "centering" silence. I like to use a part of Psalm 46:10. . . "Be still and know that I am God." If your mind begins to wander, return to a word or two from your phrase. Such as . . . "be still" or "I Am" or "know." Sit in this Holy silence for 15-20 minutes. This practice is a way of drinking from an ever present well of deep Peace.
