Centering Prayer is not a sprint.
It’s a marathon.
Centering Prayer practiced daily, weekly, monthly, yearly will transform you!
If you are faithful to your practice, your practice will be faithful to you.
Many people give up and quit too soon.
Here are some reasons that I commonly hear about why people quit:
- They do not see immediate results.
- They do not trust the process.
- They do not feel they have the time to do it.
- It is too hard to sit in silence.
The key is to stick with it.
Do not give up!
Start small if you must.
Baby steps: 1-5 minutes
Gradually increase your time.
Just keep at it!
Don’t beat yourself up if you miss a sit.
Just show up for your next sit.
Over time I think you will notice fruits.
From my experience these fruits are unique to each person.
We do not sit for these fruits but God seems to bless us with them.
Centering Prayer has been so life giving for me!
That is why I continue to return to my daily sits.
And that is why I enjoy to share it with others who want to learn more.
Let me know if I can help.
