Directory of Central Florida Centering Prayer Groups
Centering Prayer groups meet regularly at various locations throughout Florida. After the Introduction to Centering Prayer Workshop, participants are encouraged to continue to meet weekly. Centering Prayer groups support growth in this prayer practice. A typical weekly meeting consists of the Centering Prayer experience, group education activities and sharing. Our groups are composed of people from diverse backgrounds and denominations who come together seeking God.
Because of the virus pandemic, prayer groups have moved to meeting by Zoom. Here is the link to the national site offering Zoom prayer groups each day.
PRAYER GROUPS BY CITY
If you are planning to attend one of the prayer groups you should check with the contact person beforehand because of widespread closing of churches beginning in March and April 2020. As of June 2021 some groups have not yet begun to meet in person. Call to be sure.
