Centering Prayer: 10 minute silence

A centering prayer meditation with 10 minutes of silence, and closing with a Gaelic blessing.

In centering prayer, we use a sacred word to gently hold our attention on the loving gaze of God. You are invited to find a word that comes naturally to you. This might be a name by which you address the Holy, a state such as love, peace, joy, or a short phrase such as “here I am” or “be still and know that I am God.” You are invited to settle on your phrase and then to stay with it for the duration of your meditation. 

For more on centering prayer, see

Gaelic Blessing for our closing prayer today:

Deep peace of the running wave to youDeep peace of the flowing air to youDeep peace of the quiet earth to youDeep peace of the shining stars to youDeep peace of the gentle night to youMoon and stars pour healing light on youDeep peace of Christ the light of the world to you 

Deep peace of Christ to you 


Contemplative at Home offers guided meditative prayer – space to slow down and listen to the truth that is being born out of God’s love for you today – drawing on Ignatian spirituality, and at times, Lectio Divina.
