Centering Prayer

Whoever listens to me will live in safety and be at ease without fear of harm. Proverbs 1:33
 
 
Life Question: What does it mean to surrender ourselves to God?
 
 
 
As most of you who visit Soul Conversations website may know, I belong to
a Centering Prayer group. So what exactly is Centering Prayer? Centering
Prayer is a method of entering into God's presence and at the same time,
allowing the Holy Spirit to indwell within us.
Centering prayer begins with choosing a sacred word. The use of this word
helps those who engage in Centering Prayer to refocus their attention when
a thought comes into one's mind that causes us to stray from communing
with our Lord and Savior. During the time of Centering Prayer(20 minutes)
your mind will wander at times. That's natural. The goal during this time, is
to let go of the thought and let it drift away, focusing the attention back to
our Lord and Savior and listening for His voice and feeling His presence in
that moment.
When engaged in this practice myself, I have experienced twitching of my arms
and even my legs will experience this as well. It's the evacuation of the tension
and stress leaving the body that occurs when engaged in Centering Prayer.
It's been a wonderful part of my faith walk to be a part of this group. This method
of prayer has added much to my focus, direction and given me a sense of calmness
that I haven't had for a long time. At those times when my schedule has gotten booked
and Center Prayer at home is not able to be done, the difference is immediately
noticeable. Focus and direction is thrown off and my calmness is replaced with
tension and stress once again.
The most important thing I've taken away from Centering Prayer is that God wants us
to talk with Him, to engage spiritual intimacy with Him, He wants us to learn from Him
and take what we learn from Him and apply it to our lives today. Centering Prayer is
a way of communicating with our Lord and Savior so that He can impart His knowledge
and wisdom so we can live the life He has planned and purposed for us.
So take a seat in a comfortable chair, sit in quietness, pick a sacred word to use as
your way to help you let go of unwanted thoughts and allow for the presence of God
to surround you and the Holy Spirit to indwell within you!
 
Blessings,
