The Bible is the infallible Word of God. If you have read it completely and carefully, you know how often it refers to prayer. It does so in a variety of ways: it gives illustrations of individuals and groups praying, it gives commands about prayer, it gives instruction about prayer, it gives promises concerning receiving answers to prayer. The Old Testament’s Book Of Psalms is a made up of 150 psalms, most of which are the prayers of its many authors. These factors underscore the importance of prayer in daily life.
But Satan has cleverly attacked Christians by getting them to follow false and harmful ideas about prayer. One of these Satanic false ideas is called “contemplative prayer.” To read a short but good article on this subject, click on the following link: http://www.gotquestions.org/contemplative-prayer.html.
