Learn & Pray the Centering Prayer Way
Join us for this program of contemplative practice, study, and support in Centering Prayer…a Contemplative Outreach Centering Prayer Introductory Workshop offered through Journey Center Online
Centering Prayer is based on the wisdom saying of Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount: “…when you pray, go to your inner room, close the door and pray to your Father in secret. And your Father, who sees in secret, will reward you.”
If you are new to Centering Prayer, do you seek to rest your mind and heart in the loving presence of God? How would it be to simply sit in silence enjoying each other’s company?
If you are familiar with Centering Prayer, would you like to refresh your practice with a new group?
•What is Prayer?
•The Method of Centering Prayer
•Thoughts & Use of the Sacred Word
•Deepening Our Relationship with God
Learn, share, and pray the Centering Prayer Method. You will gain knowledge, awareness, gifts and fruit in your life. You will discover this practice of letting go of anxiety, worry and hurry…to rest in the presence of the One who loves you.
