“The cloud of unknowing” is one of Christianity’s enduring mysteries—a meditative state where God is experienced on the deepest inner level.

The Contemplative Prayer app offers practices and insights that will help this sacred relationship begin to unfold, ultimately leading you to embrace the presence and action of the Divine in all aspects of your life.

  • This app is wonderful

    Not only does the app have many places to explore, the audio section is the most totally consistent teaching of Centering Prayer by Father Keating I've heard. Anyone from beginner to long time practitioners can greatly benefit. I listen to it over and over. The bio section was eye opening as well.
  • Latest version better, still some issues

    The recent update fixed a couple of my complaints. You can now switch to another app, and the audio will contintue to play. Also, if you close the app, it will now continue the audio wherever you stopped it. But while there is a reference in the information section that refers to the ability to download the audio, and the help section shows that there should be a button to "rewind" the audio 30 seconds, I can find now way to switch from streaming to download. This is the type of material that I often want to "rewind" to listen more intently to something I heard. So the rewind would help a lot. And, I get occasional audio drop-outs when streaming . So, I would prefer a download.

    While attempting to familiarize myself with this app I touched the icon to the right of the bookmark icon. Now it's stuck and I can't get back to the homepage. Was so excited to find this app and now I've spent $11.99 for nothing.
