Meditation & Prayer

Meditation is a very special method of praying. Prayer is bringing your mind, soul and spirit to God’s presence, to God Almighty himself. In a regular prayer, you use words to articulate your thoughts (out loud or silently). But when you meditate, instead of using your voice, you use your imagination – thoughts inside your mind. There is also different, not well know, but extremely powerful Spoken Meditation, which I prefer the most due to amazing results.
