PRAYER DESCRIPTION LEADER
CENTERING PRAYER

The Centering Prayer Group is a small group of individuals that gathers every Thursday at 6:30 pm in the Bosler Chapel for silent contemplative prayer.

Contemplative prayer is a wordless stillness in the presence of God – an opening of the heart and mind to God.  The method of centering prayer involves the silent repetition of a sacred word or phrase.  We sit in silence with this sacred work and as we become aware of thoughts in our minds, we gently return to the sacred word.

Experience with centering prayer is not required.  Although we meet weekly, regular attendance is not required.  Come regularly or when you are able.

MORNING PRAYER
Morning Prayer at St. Thomas: Join us for Morning Prayer at Saint Thomas!

Looking for a healthy early morning routine to start your day? Maybe something to help you step back and settle down before you rush to work, at home or away, or after you drop off your St. Thomas Aquinas student? Why not “drop in” to Morning Prayer? We meet in the Bosler Chapel each weekday, from 7:45 to 8:00 AM.

Please feel welcome to come on either a regular or occasional basis. We provide the prayer books. If you have any questions contact parishioners Bill or Helene Scott at 925-3281, or Scott_William_L@yahoo.com or helene.indy@gmail.com.

PRAYER POWER
Prayer Power is a group of parishioners dedicated to daily prayer for specific and individual needs of others.  This gives shut-ins and busy people an opportunity to volunteer and participate in a ministry from the comfort of their homes.  Prayer Power receives requests for prayer by self-referral, phone or email.  Volunteers commit to prayer for 6 weeks.  Requests are held in confidence.  All that is required is to set aside a brief time each day to pray.  There are no rules regarding how to pray.

Volunteers of the Prayer Power Ministry should have a daily prayer time and faith to believe that God answers prayer.  Members must have a spirit of generosity, compassion, and commitment towards those seeking prayers and must respect the confidentiality of prayer requests.

 

“…this is the boldness we have in God’s presence: that if we ask God for anything that agrees with what he wants, he hears us. If we know he hears us every time we ask him, we know we have what we ask from him.”
1 John 5:14
