    Whenever we feel the spiritual influence of insight or inspiration, we should record it—perhaps in a special book dedicated to that purpose, a “prayer notes book.” As the years go by, we can often find the revelation we need right there in our own notes! Contemplation, and other Enhancements of Prayer. Spurgeon said that “prayer moves the arm that moves the world.” Prayer is an essential discipline of the Christian life. It’s our primary means of connecting, moment-by-moment, with the Father and Creator. Jesus gave basic lessons in prayer to the disciples, and he also gave them models of deeper prayer and intercession. Prayer is simple.

      The practice of contemplative prayer, if it is regular and daily, habituates one with an encounter with God. If it happens that during this prayer the mind and imagination wander, drawing one away from the exercise of faith, it is always possible to help oneself by reading a selected text, by reciting a vocal prayer, or just by directing one.

Answer: It is important to first define “contemplative prayer.” Contemplative prayer is not just “contemplating while you pray.” The Bible instructs us to pray with our minds (1 Corinthians ), so, clearly, prayer does involve contemplation. However, praying with your mind is not what “contemplative prayer” has come to mean.

This book was recommended to me by a reader: Prayer by Hans Urs von Balthasar. I probably wouldn’t have had any interest if it hadn’t been explicitly pointed out to me that the title in French is Contemplative Prayer.

OK, that is a much more interesting book. This book exists, as von Balthasar himself notes, as a kind of summary of his most important thoughts and ideas and focus. In the introduction of his book, Father states “ Before doing this [contemplation], however, it is indispensable for each of us to acknowledge (at least intellectually) the fundamental basis for Christian contemplation, namely, the unconditional Love of God.” To know the unconditional love of God is the first step to prayer and contemplation.

It wasn’t the way I learned it at the monastery. I learned it through the traditional monastic practice of what we call lectio, meditatio, oratio, contemplatio: reading, meditating, affective prayer, and then contemplation.

But then in the book I found a simple method that was teachable. I was just amazed. Christian contemplation, from contemplatio (Latin; Greek θεωρία, theoria), refers to several Christian practices which aim at "looking at", "gazing at", "being aware of" God or the Divine. It includes several practices and theological concepts, and until the sixth century the practice of what is now called mysticism was referred to by the term contemplatio, c.q.
