Centering Prayer is a daily practice of sitting in silence in God’s presence while letting go of all business of mind and body. This silence deepens our relationship with God by making us more open to the Beloved Trinity and the Divine love that flows between us.
This experience helps us become more aware of God’s presence in our lives and to live out of a place of love and compassion. Many passages in the Bible emphasize that God is present in stillness and silence. For example, Isaiah 30:15, “In quietness and in trust shall be your strength.” According to Father Thomas Keating, Centering Prayer becomes the foundation of a much more fruitful apostolate and of relationships and actions that are truly unselfish with ourselves, others, God and our church.
Centering Prayer provides the experience of the Trinity living the divine life within and through us.
