Supporting our members in prayer is very important at Christ Church.
Prayer requests can be e-mailed to our Prayer Chain co-ordinator.
We have a team who pray faithfully each day for these confidential requests.
Centering Prayer/Praying in Community:
We invite you to join us in a time of prayer, personal intercessions, and then a silence of 20 minutes each Wednesday morning at 9:00 am in your own home, wherever you are, on a quiet walk or drive so that communally we can be a united force of energy and light in prayer together.
Preparation for Centering Prayer:
“For God alone my soul waits in silence”. Psalm 62:5
Basil Pennington and Thomas Keating suggest these steps for practicing Centering Prayer: 1. Sit comfortably with your eyes closed, relax, and quiet yourself. 2. Be in love and faith to God. 3. Choose a sacred word that best supports your sincere intention to be in the Lord's presence and open to His divine action within you. When your attention wanders, use this sacred word to re-focus.
Prayer at the end of the 20 minute silence:-
Please let us know if you are joining us on Wednesdays.
