Ware, C. (2001) Saint-Benedict on the Freeway 

The test of whether any spiritual discipline ias a good one or not is whether it makes the [practitioner more whole, more what they are intended by the Creator to be. pp74

If it is true that prayer is klistenuing and response, and not primarily talking, then that drasticallty changes how we see prayer. If prayer is maintaining openness to and contact with God, then it is more an attitude than an activity. This oppenmess would not eliminate our written and spoken 'word prayers' but would include them in a much richer variety of ways in which we can relate to God. pp96
