Dependence of Prayer on Meditation and Vice Versa

Prayer without meditation on the Word of God will disintegrate into humanistic spirituality.  It will simply reflect our own fallen ideas and feelings – not God’s.  And meditation, without the humility of desperate prayer, will create proud legalism or hopeless despair.

– Piper, John; When I Don’t Desire God: How to Fight for Joy; Crossway; Wheaton, Ill.; copyright  2004; p. 149
