Meditation and Prayer

My brothers started a discussion about meditation and prayer. The question or thought was that one believed prayer was the same as meditation, while the other believed meditation was quite different and separate from prayer. Following is my interpretation of the two.

In my experience, prayer generally is a supplication to a Divine Being. We send prayers for help, we send prayers for strength, we send prayers for courage, or encouragement. Prayer is usually an attempt to invite in the power of the Divine to help us in some way. I have always thought of prayer as speaking to the divine; it is usually a one-sided conversation or request.
