Contemplative Prayer in Our Everyday Lives, Part 2

In Part 2 of this great conversation with Jan Johnson, author, and spiritual director, Jan continues to share lessons she learned from her mentor, friend, and co-author, Dallas Willard. She shares how using our imagination, our five God-given senses, and an openness to the power of the Spirit can transform "the mental chore of prayer" into a beautiful, personal relationship with God. In her book, "When the Soul Listens," she writes, "In contemplative prayer, the curtains of impression management come down. There's no one you have to impress; you are accepted as you are. The real you gladly runs to a just but tender God who wants nothing but the best for you." Heartlifter, let that one thought sink in as you listen and experience a Lectio Divina of Luke 7:11-16.
