Centering Prayer


Centering Prayer
Centering Prayer is a form of Christian prayer in the contemplative tradition, in which we open our heart and mind, our whole being, to God, who is beyond thoughts, words, and emotions. The root of contemplative prayer is interior silence, a silence in which we deepen our relationship with God and over time may free ourselves from attachments that hinder this. Centering prayer is a form of prayer to help us in our intention to be in God's presence, to surrender to the divine, to consent to God's intention  to communicate the divine life to us.
 
The Purpose of a Centering Prayer Group
                                               “Comfort and encourage each other...”
                                                                                                      1 Thessalonians  4:18

Centering Prayer is usually done privately as part of a daily spiritual routine, but a weekly sharing of experience and support in a small group has helped many of us in our progress. The group aims to be a source of encouragement that has helped its members in their understanding and practice of Centering Prayer and the contemplative tradition.
 
Our meetings consist of a period of silent prayer (Centering Prayer), followed by a reading  or  video presentation that we discuss. People new to the prayer will be taught the method before the group begins. 
 
The St. Peter‘s Centering Prayer group is affiliated with Contemplative Outreach which holds introductory programs at various San Diego churches several times a year. Attending such a program is recommended, but not necessary for joining our Prayer Group.
 
We meet on Thursdays from 4:30-6:00. All are welcome.  Please call the church office (858-755-1616) for more information.
Worship this weekend! Sat. 5 p.m. (spoken), Sun. 7:45 a.m. (traditional, spoken), 9 a.m. Family Service (sung), 10 a.m. Sunday School, 11 a.m. (organ and choir)
