Centering Prayer

Centering prayer is a prayer that lets go of all thoughts, words and feelings and enables the person to be present to God with only an infinite desire to love and be loved unconditionally. 

The rationale of Centering Prayer is found in the 14th century classic, “The Cloud of Unknowing.” The anonymous author writes of a “blind desire,” “a naked intent” to go to the infinite God without thought or feeling, to be present with pure faith to the God who is mystery, beyond complete understanding. This teaching is found also in the works of John Cassian, a 5th century monk.
