CHRIST CENTERED PRAYER
Christ Centered Prayer is a simple inner prayer of awareness under the guidance of the Holy Spirit in the name of Jesus Christ. Christ Centered Prayer may directly facilitate entrance into the Spiritual Heart Center and the awareness of God, the still small voice, who is known by faith and dwells within you always. "Be still, and know that I am God . . ." (Psalm 46: 10).
The Christ Centered Prayer practice is for you, who have an interest in responding to God "without words" in solitude, simplicity, and silence. "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God" (Matthew 5: 8). You are not unlike the prodigal child returning home to your Father's house. Christ Centered Prayer may open your heart to God's healing presence and power. The implicit petition is, "Create in me a clean heart, O God; renew right spirit within me" (Psalm 51: 10). Access to the Divine Indwelling is not only possible, but practical. It is to this Divine Indwelling awareness that the Christ Centered Prayer intends.
We will do a review of the method (2 minutes!) before we sit to pray. A facilitated discussion of our experience will follow the 20 minute prayer session. All are welcome!
Christ-Centered Prayer class: Wednesdays, in the Rector's Office, 4:45pm-5:45pm
