Prayer as a form of meditation

Have you ever thought about the way people pray? It's been something I have always thought every time I see someone pray. The way they find a nice quiet spot and then put themselves into a position and give themselves a moment of silence to speak to their God.

I believe prayer is a similar action to meditation. Where you are in deep silence, you keep still, you concentrate. I see it almost as an opportunity for you to find oneself. To make peace with yourself and the world around you.

In movies they always talk about making peace with yourself, so to me, it seems that prayer and meditation is one way for people to do that. It's something that most (if not all) religions have in common. So regardless of whatever religion you believe in, it's a time to take a step back from the world and to reflect in silence.

So take the moment to pray (or meditate) in silence. For it is the common action that helps make peace with yourself and the world around you...
