Contemplative Prayer is a relatively new concept to me. In the short time I have been able to implement this practice, I have seen a great impact to my thoughtfulness and mood. I have a tendency to always be on the go, and tend to lose myself in thinking about what is next, rather than being in the moment or even reflecting on the past. Forcing myself to slow down and connect with myself and with God has helped keep me consistent. The previous pattern of reading, worshipping, and praying for a short time, then as weeks and months went on, my faith and practice would slip to the realm of non-existence. The challenge for me is continuing to be consistent and eliminate these swings of highs and lows.
