Centering Prayer is a method of prayer that prepares our faculties to receive the gift of God´s presence, traditionally called contemplative prayer. It consists of responding to the Spirit of Christ by consenting to the presence and action of God in one's daily life.


Everything growing on earth, bless the Lord.  

Praise and exalt him above all forever.  

Daniel 3:76
