    Vision Statement

Centering Prayer Kuala Lumpur Chapter, Malaysia, has also been known as `Prayer Outreach' of the Prayer Ministry Office. This is a spiritual network of individuals and small faith communities committed to living the Contemplative Dimension of the Gospel in everyday life through the practices of Centering Prayer. The contemplative dimension of the Gospel manifests itself in an ever-deepening union with the living Christ and also the practical caring for others that flows from that relationship.

Centering Prayer Kuala Lumpur Chapter, Malaysia, is fully affiliated to the international network of Contemplative Outreach Ltd of the USA, which was founded by Rev Fr. Thomas Keating.

Our purpose is to share the Method of Centering Prayer and its immediate conceptual background. We also encourage the practice of Lectio Divina, particularly its movement into Contemplative Prayer, which a regular and established practice of Centering Prayer facilitates.

We identify with the Christian Contemplative Heritage. We are united in our common search for God and the experience of the living Christ through Centering Prayer. We respect the Contemplative Dimension of other religions and Sacred Traditions, with the needs and rights of the whole human family, and with all creations.
