Centering Prayer
Meets weekly during Enrichment Hour | Location: Prayer Room
Centering Prayer helps us make space for God within our hearts and daily lives.   Jesus said, “When you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you.”  We will practice praying in silence, learn more about contemplative prayer, share resources about Centering Prayer, and support one another in our spiritual journeys.  All are invited, both those new to Centering Prayer and those who already practice it.

About Centering Prayer at Bend First Presbyterian

Centering Prayer is a time of making space for God within - and a way to enter stillness. It doesn’t replace other forms of prayer but enlarges our hearts to welcome Christ’s compassion. We gather for 20 minutes of silence in God’s presence, consenting to the Spirit’s agenda and letting go of our own.

Four opportunities for Centering Prayer happen each week at First Pres. Consider making time during the New Year to join others in Centering Prayer.

A contemplative 20 minute prayer practice focusing on one’s relationship with God; turning to God and seeking God’s agenda.
