Why should I worship, pray and meditate?

Q: Why should I worship, pray and meditate?

A:  From The Urantia Book:

(91:7.2) The soul of man requires spiritual exercise as well as spiritual nourishment.

(99:7.4) Man can never wisely decide temporal issues or transcend the selfishness of personal interests unless he meditates in the presence of the sovereignty of God and reckons with the realities of divine meanings and spiritual values.

(160:3.1) Meditation makes the contact of mind with spirit; relaxation determines the capacity for spiritual receptivity. And this interchange of strength for weakness, courage for fear, the will of God for the mind of self, constitutes worship.

(195:6.7) One of the great troubles with modern life is that man thinks he is too busy to find time for spiritual meditation and religious devotion.

These are but a few Urantia Book quotes regarding prayer, worship and meditation. Please see Worship , Prayer , and Meditation for a much larger exploration of these subjects.
