In Contemplative or Reflective prayer, a transition of focus is being made so that we can become more in tune with our Lord’s Loving Presence within our Heart. From this depth of relationship, we are able to "be still and know" ... hear his Word, engage in prayerful conversation with Him and receive wise directions and choices for our daily life situations ... but most importantly we are able to merge with his Living Presence in our Heart.
How gently and lovingly you wake in my Heart,
where in secret you dwell alone,
and in your sweet breathing filled with good and glory,
how tenderly you swell with Love.”
~ St. John of the Cross
