Prayer of Quiet (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) The Prayer of Quiet is a term from Christian theology. It is regarded by writers on mystical theology as one of the degrees of contemplation or contemplative prayer, and must be distinguished therefore from meditation and from affective prayer. It holds an intermediary place between the latter and the prayer of union. As the name implies the prayer of quiet is considered a state in which the soul experiences an extraordinary peace and rest, accompanied by delight or pleasure in contemplating God as present.

The Prayer of Quiet is discussed in the writings of Saint Teresa of Ávila, Francis of Sales, Thomas Merton and others

Quiet Contemplation is a little drawing I created on paper a while ago…i photographed her, and painted her digitally … I created the background on the computer.
