Benefits of Meditation From A Theological Perspective

Theological Meditative Benefits Many of us are aware of the physical benefits of meditation.  However, those are side benefits and not the primary reason why one should utilize meditation in one’s prayer life.   Meditation’s ultimate purpose is to unite one with God.
