Be still and know that I am God. (Psalm 46:10)
Prayer, we agree to be still — intentionally and willingly still — and we wait for God. We consent to God’s presence and movement in our lives. For a short while, we rest in God and give up our desire to pray with words or thoughts or feelings. We do our best to let go of our own worries, desires and agendas and let God’s Holy Spirit pray in us. We are simply open and receptive to God.
There is so much more to say about this rich and powerful prayer practice! We’ll take a closer look at Contemplative Prayer and a few of its various forms, including Centering Prayer, at the Lenten Series on Wednesday, March 27th at 7 pm in Fr. Dowling Hall.
Whether you’ve never heard about this prayer before today —or you’ve been practicing Contemplative prayer for years— you are most welcome to attend!
