Do you feel closer to your creator when you pray or when you meditate? I feel close to my creator when I do either. It is just a different feeling. When I pray, I feel I have His ear. When I meditate, I feel Him physically near me. I just wonder what others feel too.
my feelings don't always tell me the Truth... so mostly I don't respond to many of them now. My simple prayer.. as I only pray now for knowledge of His will and the power to carry it out... is "Speak Father, I am listening." So I'd have to say I spend a lot more time listening for His still small voice, than I do asking for things... The Serenity prayer never fails to move me, but I always say the "WE" version. I helps to keep my ego right sized. I feel Him near me most all the time.. A teacher one time told me... "Tell your feelings how to feel". As I do this more and more, I have more and more decisions to make, and more creative power to shine love around dark spaces.
