Did you know there are two types of prayer? Intercessory prayer, in which you talk to God to tell or ask for something, is what many people think of when they think of prayer. In meditative or contemplative prayer, your goal is to get yourself into a receptive mind-set to experience the presence of God.
Intercessory prayer is talking, while contemplative prayer is listening, Both are valuable.
