In centering prayer, we seek awareness of the presence of God by withdrawing our attention from the ordinary flow of thoughts. Centering prayer cultivates an interior silence which enables us to move into a spiritual realm of intimacy with God.
Being attentive to God’s Spirit requires inner quiet. The methodical steps of centering prayer bring our minds to stillness, silence, and concentration. Our goal is to allow God’s presence to become our reality, giving our life meaning, shape, and purpose.
