Accept this invitation to an exciting and life-transforming journey through the gift of contemplative prayer. In forty days you will discover how you can be centered in prayer and centered in daily living. The book teaches a method of prayer that goes deeper than verbal conversations with God. It teaches: silent communion with God, a method of being open to the gift of God's presence, a way of receiving a deep and intimate relationship with God. Each day offers a scripture reading as a basis for the meditation that follows. J. David Muyskens includes stories from his personal experience and draws from a diverse collection of Protestant and Catholic practitioners of contemplative prayer. Book jacket.
Are you trying to do it all yourself? Muyskens reminds us that what God seeks is relationship with us, a two-way communication. What relationship with God requires is very similar to what our earthly relationships require: openness, listening, focused time. One way to practice the skills needed for this relationship is centering prayer, a simple but deeply powerful prayer practice. In beautiful and accessible language, Muyskens invites us to spend time daily focusing our hearts on God, to find the power to be still and be reoriented to "the One who is the Center of all." Exercises in prayer and scripture reading are provided for the 40 days.
Rev. J. David Muyskens is a retired ordained pastor of the Reformed Church in America. He currently serves as the volunteer coordinator of Contemplative Outreach. He is a graduate of the Shalem Institute, a commissioned presenter of the Introductory Centering Prayer Workshop, and has been a spiritual director for fifteen years.
