Join us each week online for Centering Prayer Meditation 20 April 5pm via zoom with Kathryn Pile. ALL WELCOME
This week, we’ll start a new series of meditations taken from the Psalms, where the themes of longing, seeking, and quieting allow us to come into God’s presence.
Our first meditation Psalm 42 with its words on longing commences this series.
These words are intentional. It’s a time to experience where and if any word or phrase stands out for you. Take what you need of them into your silence as your centering prayer.
As a deer longs for flowing streams, so my soul longs for you, my God.
My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.
When shall I come and behold the face of God?
…Why are you cast down, O my soul,
And why are you disquieted within me?
Hope in God, for I shall again praise my help and my God.
Deep calls to deep
At the thunder of your cataracts;
All your waves and billows
Have gone over me.
Hope in God, for I shall again sing praises to my help and my God.
As you begin to relax now in body and mind, slow your breathing, and enter your meditation, centering your prayer, your in-most being on your will and intention on God’s Presence; Lord, I hunger for you, I thirst for you like a deer for living water…deep calls to deep.
Love and every blessing
