Tag: National Day of Prayer
Tag: Contemplative Prayer

For those who are unaware of the term "contemplative prayer" beware of this spiritual term that is being interwoven and subtly interjected into Christianity; it has its roots in the occult and mysticism, New Age, and universalism and is oft referred to as "contemplative prayer." Contemplative prayer is nothing new; it is just being "repackaged" to sell to the masses and undiscerning Christians and amounts to the same old eastern mysticism of transcendental meditation. This type of prayer practice is forbidden by God in the Bible as written in the Book of Deuteronomy 18:9-11. Beware the wolves in sheep's clothing. The Bible tells us that in the last days we will incur spiritual deception and the Apostle Paul warns of those who did not believe the truth, God would send them a strong delusion that they should believe a lie in II Thessalonians Chapter 2 vs. 11.

Lighthouse Trails Research Blog is reporting that The National Day of Prayer has once again chosen Heart's Cry by Jennifer Kennedy Dean as one of this year's featured books. Kennedy Dean writes about the "listening prayer" in chapter 11 of her book. Here are some excerpts:"God calls us to silence, inner as well as outer. He invites us to listening prayer [contemplative prayer] ... in the inner sanctuary of our souls.... Listening prayer is the ground from which spoken prayer grows. Spoken prayer will not reach its fullness unless it is born in listening prayer" (p. 127). Please read more at above link.
