Lenten Centering Prayer
In the busy-ness of many of our lives, prayer often becomes one more thing to do. Or one more thing not to do. What would it mean to give prayer — steady, centering, grounding, prayer — a more central place in our lives? Would you like to deepen your practice of prayer? Make it more regular, more meaningful, more integrated in your overall life?
Prayer is a spiritual lifeline. Just as walking is the regular physical exercise and forward movement for the body, prayer can be a regular spiritual exercise for the soul. The more we do it, the more it sustains us and helps us in the world around us. Centering prayer is a form of meditation in the Christian tradition using the breath and a sacred word to help center ourselves in God's Presence. It is a spiritual practice that we learn about and practice together.
