There are many ways to engage in Contemplative or Centering Prayer.
Prayer works best when we just do it, so here are the basics:
- Choose a sacred word as the symbol of your intention to consent to God’s presence and action within.
- Sit comfortably and with eyes closed, settle briefly and silently introduce the sacred word as the symbol of your consent to God.
- When engaged with your “thoughts” (words, feelings, images, etc.), return gently to the sacred word.
- At the end of the prayer, remain in silence with eyes closed for a couple of minutes.
