CENTERING PRAYER Ministry Leader: Lindbergh Marzo Meeting Time: Mondays, 4:30p.m. in the Sanctuary What is Centering Prayer? Centering Prayer is a method of silent prayer that prepares us to receive the gift of contemplative prayer, prayer in which we experience God's presence within us, closer than breathing, closer than thinking, closer than consciousness itself. This method of prayer is both a relationship with God and a discipline to foster that relationship.
