    Contemplative prayer appeals to me for so many reasons yet I find it very difficult. I love the idea that “God is closer to you than you are to yourself” and the intimacy of the imagery of God holding us close, but I am in constant motion. Mindfulness and meditation are things I have always found helpful but I am a very active and busy person and it is difficult to relinquish to contemplative prayer even though it is exactly what I need to be doing. This is why I love the idea of it as a “practice” meaning there is no perfect way to do it. I’m excited to commit to it during this unit as I do want to spend more time in intentional prayer.
