Inasmuch as Christ lives in us and we have His mind, at some point we must completely surrender to His mind and be willing to move beyond all thoughts, concepts, words, experiences, emotions, signs, and forms. It is our blessed privilege to enter the depths of His presence and LET Him pray in us and through us (see Isaiah 40:13; Romans 8:26-27; 1 Corinthians 2:16; Galatians 2:20; Philippians 2:5). This type of prayer is truly a gift of God’s grace and not something we can manufacture through human efforts (see Zechariah 4:6).
“At times when you can’t pray, let Jesus pray in you to the Father. Let your heart be silent. This is pure contemplation. There are no words or images or efforts in pure contemplation, for it is Christ’s prayer to his Father coming to life in you on a very subtle level. This most profound kind of prayer, which may not feel like prayer, is the source of transformation in Christ. In order to allow Christ to pray in you to the the Father, pray with nothing. Pray in God.”—The Path of Centering Prayer: Deepening Your Experience of God by David Frenette, p. 85.
