Meditation is a way of relaxing the mind and the body as well. It’s one way of connecting to our subconscious and freeing ourselves from stress. The bible mentioned it a lot of times and pertain it as one way of praying and connecting to god. Does meditation can be considered as one way of prayer?

Meditation has nothing to do with prayer to me. When you meditate you are clearing your mind in order to have a better understanding and control of your own emotions.

Meditation is a great tool if used properly. It can clear your head of many troubles. I guess for those who pray it's a great moment to do so.

Meditation is almost an art

Meditation is almost an art form. Our minds need to be trained in order to meditate properly. I suppose that prayer is also more meaningful if someone is in a state of meditation. Not that it probably does anything as far as communicating with a higher force, but it would be more powerful for the person.

I believe in the healing powers of meditation, and not to be confused with prayer, meditation truly helps you clear your mind and feel better.
