St. Paul urges us to pray without ceasing! Really? Is that possible?
I've come to believe that it is - mainly because I believe that 'prayer' is more than just reciting words to our God. I believe that prayer is lifting up our thoughts to God in our words, actions and deeds.
Being conscious of the fact that I am a child of God, is a prayer.
I understand that every word I speak to another, every deed I engage in and every action I take has an effect on somebody or something in God's world. I either make it a better place or a darker place every day of my life.
When I treat someone with kindness and respect - especially when they don't deserve it - then I am a reflection of Christ's mercy. And my very life, becomes a prayer!
