Prayer and Meditation

Although it's too seldom taught or practiced, our communing with God consists of two equally important parts: prayer and meditation. Prayer is our talking to God. Most of us have this aspect down. Meditation is our listening to God. And here most of us need a bit of work.



Have you ever been in a relationship where the other person does all the talking? There's an up side to this: you become a good listener, and the other person feels great comfort and ease sharing personal issues with you. But there's a down side too: as you're called upon to always listen and never talk, you can begin feeling unknown, perhaps a little unloved, and sometimes, even used.

Now, think about how this scenario might apply to your relationship with God. Are you doing all the talking, without ever taking the time to listen? If you're sharing with Him from the depths of your heart, and seeking guidance and wisdom, that's fantastic! By all means, keep it up. Just make sure, that as you do this, you're also taking the time and training the ears of your heart to listen to God as well.

Remember, God tends to speak with a still, small voice; He very rarely shouts at His children. That's why meditation is such an important aspect of prayer. It teaches you to develop a quiet, patient heart and an open attentive ear. These are essential components of the mature Christian.

Hi to all,

Galileesilks is the leading and prominent online store selling the different design of Jewish prayer shawl for men and women. The Jewish people have used the tallit in the morning prayer. It is their traditional cloth.The Jewish people have followed the tradition very long time.They not only use in prayer and meditation but also used in the festivals, wedding and other occasions.These shawl are made with cotton,wool and silk clothes. The women prefer to buy the shawl through online.

Best regards
