The Centuring Prayer
Using the Centering Prayer or Praying the Scriptures is a method of prayer which results in a very balanced life.
Spirituality is a path you choose to take. Living more spiritually can also help to increase your faith in life; you’ll begin to trust that you’re headed in the right direction, even if you can’t see what’s around the corner. Spirituality Coaching helps clarify issues related to the spiritual path and to the practices.
It is a prayer of interior silence.
It is seen as a method to open the mind and heart to God, a practice of taking one beyond thoughts, words and emotions to God in a close relationship closer than breathing, thinking, feeling, choosing or even consciousness itself.
Traditionally it is called Contemplative Prayer.
It consists of responding to God’s Presence and action within self. It quiets the faculties to cooperate with the Gift of God’s Presence. It also facilitates the movement from modes of prayer such as verbal, mental or affective into a receptive prayer of resting in God.
According to Pennington Centering Prayer emphasizes prayer as a personal relationship with God and is a discipline to foster and serve this relationship by a regular, daily practice of prayer (rituals or activities).
Members of Contemplative Outreach believe that the Centering Prayer is Trinitarian in its source, Christ Centered in its focus and Ecclesial in its effects.
According to Basil Pennington and Father Thomas Keating, the practice involves short repetitive prayers.
