Centering prayer allows you to be in union with God, to be aware of God, and to be as close to God as your very breath. It is a holy act, where you don't have to worry about doing, but instead settle into simply being. And, it's a lot more difficult than you think. 

Father Pennington's structure for Centering Prayer: 1. Be with God. 2. Use a word with stay with God. 3. Use the word to return to God. Isn't that great? Be with God, stay with God, return to God.

Two great resources I recommend are Centering Prayer, by Basil Pennington and Centering Prayer and Inner Awakening, by Cynthia Bourgeault.
