Unceasing prayer as a way of life

Sitting on my desk at home is a small figurine of a little boy in prayer. He’s kneeling, his hands folded in front of him, with his eyes looking upward.

To me this sweet figurine symbolizes the mental attitude that opens us up to God’s supreme wisdom and gentle ministrations. It’s an attitude that can be with us anywhere at any time, without our having to be on our knees. It’s a humble, listening-to-God consciousness that enables us to silently “pray without ceasing” (I Thessalonians 5:17), as the Apostle Paul did throughout his ministry and recommended to all. It’s something we can nurture within ourselves day by day.
