Welcoming Prayer

The Welcoming Prayer is a method of consenting to God’s presence and action in our physical and emotional reactions to events and situations in daily life. The purpose of the Welcoming Prayer is to deepen our relationship with God through consenting in the ordinary activities of our day -- “consent-on-the-go.”



The Welcoming Prayer helps to dismantle acquired emotional programs and to heal the wounds of a lifetime by addressing them where they are stored — in the body. It contributes to the process of transformation in Christ initiated in Centering Prayer.

Welcoming Prayer

The Method


Feel and sink into what you are experiencing this moment in your body.


“Welcome” what you are experiencing this moment in your body as an opportunity to consent to the Divine Indwelling.


Let go by saying “I let go of my desire for security, affection, control and embrace this moment as it is.”
