Contemplative Prayer Project

What is more important than prayer? If you’re looking for a way to deepen your prayer life, check out our Contemplative Prayer Project.



Psalm 46:10-a. Be still, and know that I am God.

As an online community, we sit quietly for ten minutes of contemplative prayer each day, for six days a week, with breaks for major holidays. Compared to other prayer programs, most people can easily keep up with our modest pace.

Pray with the Masters. Our prayer practice is based on great mystics from the entire Christian heritage: John of the Cross, Teresa of Avila, and other great teachers.

Our Pace is Achievable. Our modest prayer commitment of ten minutes a day is an easy commitment.

Grow in Prayer. This practice can help you advance in: Meditative Prayer, Contemplative Prayer, and Unitive Prayer.

Most prayer programs are based on vocal prayer. People pray petitions aloud. Or they recite memorized prayers. Those are wonderful ways of praying.

However, they are meant to take us further. We are meant to advance:

  • From spoken prayer to meditative prayer.
  • From meditative prayer to contemplative prayer.
  • From contemplative prayer to unitive prayer.

Join our Contemplative Prayer Project for your own personal enrichment. We celebrate your participation, and we impose neither guilt nor obligation. If you fall behind, you can catch up quickly or ask for help.

Don’t worry about trying to start from some hypothetical beginning and trying to catch up. You can start right now.

What do you do? Sit quietly for ten minutes of contemplative prayer each day.
