Pray without ceasing

The silence is all there is.  It is the alpha and the omega.  It is God’s brooding over the face of the waters; it is the blended note of ten thousand things, the whine of wings.  You take a step in the right direction to pray to this silence, and even address the prayer to “World.”  Distinctions blur.  Quit your tents.  Pray without ceasing.
