Summer Centering Prayer Group

June 9 @ 9:45 am - 10:45 am

Centering Prayer

In the depths of your being, so much is going on because you care about so much. Centering Prayer is a way to allow God to quietly but firmly let you know that you are loved in the busyness of living. Centering Prayer helps us attend to the natural intimacy with God deep within us. Nothing is required except showing up and quieting the mind—and turning the heart toward God.

Centering Prayer is a simple method of prayer that expands one’s receptivity to the presence and activity of God in your life. You sit and allow your heart to open toward God. Whenever a thought comes into your mind, you simply let the thought go and return to an open, silent attending upon the depths within. Not because thinking is bad, but because it pulls you back to the surface of yourself. You use a short word or phrase, known as a ‘sacred word’ (such as ‘abba’ or ‘peace’ or ‘be still’) to help you let go of thoughts. It’s that simple: Sit, Breathe with your sacred Word, Listen.

Doing this prayer with others can be profound. We will be facilitating these prayer times on 2nd and 4th Sundays through the summer:

June 9 and 23

July 14 and 28

August 11 and 25

9:45am – 10:45am in the St. Andrew’s Center for Spiritual Direction

No previous experience with Centering Prayer is required.
