Pastor Gilley: Differences between Contemplative Prayer and Biblical Prayer

This may be the best explanation of the differences between contemplative prayer (one of the “disciplines” of spiritual formation) and biblical prayer I’ve read. It isn’t brief, but it is well worth the read. (from Pastor Gary Gilley at Southern View Chapel). With so many proponents of Contemplative spirituality out there, it is imperative that Christians understand the differences and the dangers.

Once you’ve read it be sure to visit Lighthouse Trails Research Project to learn more about which preachers and teachers promote contemplative spirituality.
