The ancient practice of contemplative prayer, in its simplest form, is prayer in which you still your thoughts and emotions and focus on God Himself, better enabling you to hear God’s voice correcting, guiding, and directing.

"Dear Neema, we pray that as you spend your own time in prayer you would be able to put your “to do” lists for God aside (and we all have these) and come to Him this morning with no agenda other than to enjoy His companionship. Lord, hear our prayer. Amen"
