Product Description

It's been said that centering prayer is like two friends sitting together in silence, just being in each other's presence---completely natural and comfortable. Yet, centering prayer is sometimes viewed as too mysterious, too escapist, too hard.

At first, it even appeared that way to the author, but events in his life and his further studies about prayer redirected his views. Through Muyskens' insightful guidance, you'll explore a simple, biblical practice of prayer that leads to a deep communion with God and encourages a way of life motivated by the divine, perhaps untapped, Presence at the center of your being. Through a simple 20-minute per day practice of contemplative prayer over the course of 40 days, draw closer in your relationship with God. As you progress through the daily scripture and meditative readings in Forty Days to a Closer Walk with God, you'll find greater understanding and fresh awareness of Jesus' promise, "I am with you always."

Publisher's Description

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 the Lord, 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.
