The Benefits of Combining Prayer and Meditation


I found this article online and thought you might be interested.

Do you feel the divine silence during Mediation?

I am always seeking articles whether web written or video to grow spiritually and become closer to the Almighty Father.

Upon talking to a friend the other day, I was surprised to hear she does not meditate when she prays.  She attends church weekly and knows the bible better than I do.

You can imagine that I couldn’t help but think, “Doesn’t everyone pray to the Lord and meditate afterwards? Am I one of the few who picked up on this while reading the bible?”

The bible is full of meditation after all, such as Psalm 4:4

Psalm 4:4

Tremble, and do not sin; Meditate in your heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah.

That is the first five books of our current Bible known as Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. The Pentateuch is also known as the Torah. (ref)

Joshua 1:8

“This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success.

 

After reading the full article, I’d love to hear your comments on the subject. Do you currently practice it? If not, is this something you’re willing to try?
