Prayer

Lord, Teach Us to Pray

Join us, as we become more of a PRAYING CHURCH. We want to make room for God's leading through the Holy Spirit in our lives and ministries.

If you would like to sign up to receive the weekly prayer guide, please click here. Together, we will become a "praying church" instead of a church that prays. Thank you and God bless.

Practice Centering Prayer

Centering Prayer is a receptive 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 and thinking. This is a prayer is that both builds a relationship with God and a discipline to foster that relationship.

Centering Prayer is not meant to replace other kinds of prayer. Rather, it adds depth of meaning to all prayer and facilitates the movement from more active types of prayer into a receptive prayer of resting in and with God. Centering Prayer emphasizes prayer as a personal relationship with God and as a movement beyond conversation with Christ to communion with Christ.
