Different groups have different terminology and different practice, so it isn’t that straight forward. Evangelical Christians view all prayer as worship, and so tend to engage in contemplative prayer or a form of Christian meditation and just consider it ‘prayer’.

This is basically same for all religions. Praying is different in religions. Pray in basically offering your loyalty and respect to a god/gods/spirit, and having a wish granted in turn.

Meditation is essentially just relaxation.

Prayer is where a person tries talking to invisible wizards.

Meditation is to look inside one’s self. Prayer is communication with the Divine.

Meditation, from my understanding, is the act to become one with yourself. To let all stress out and to cleanse your spirit. Praying is to talk with god, ask for help, to thank, ask forgiveness, etc. Praying is a way to communicate with god 1 way.

There are many ways to meditate, but at its heart it is not a petition to the Universe.
