Meditate...Then Pray

Christian meditation (thinking deeply on Scripture) is "the missing link between Bible intake and prayer."  If there was a "secret" to George Müller's prayer life, it was his discovery of the connection between meditation and prayer.  Müller's discovery was that after meditating on Scripture he was more able to experience a meaningful prayertime.
