Contemplative Prayer Develops Holiness in Us — A Quote by Elaine Heath in “The Mystic Way of Evangelism”

“’Sometimes people think contemplative prayer is self-centered and not action-oriented enough…This is because they do not understand its power to heal and transform us into the people God means for us to be. Contemplative prayer leads to the development of real holiness, so that our whole life is lived in God’s light, the way God intended. The truth is, we become like the God we worship, the God who speaks to us in prayer. It turns out that contemplative prayer is the ground for all true intercession. It is a healing practice that takes us out into the world where we become good news.’”
