The Welcoming Prayer addresses the question, when the Centering time is over, what is my next step? The Welcoming Prayer is a method of extending the consent and letting go which one practices during prayer time to one's daily life.
Resources for the Welcoming Prayer include material on the Contemplative Outreach national site. You may also consult the book Centering Prayer and Inner Awakening, by Cynthia Bourgeault - Chapter 13. It can be purchased from the Contemplative Outreach bookstore or from Amazon.
A spiritual director at the Houston Cenacle is available to teach the Welcoming Prayer to individuals.
