Prayer without Words

sunriseSometimes (perhaps often), we think of prayer as words directed at God.  Even if we view prayer as a conversation, it still seems word-focused.  Frederick Schmidt writes about prayer without words: “Prayer shaped by conversation in mystery is marked by unspoken prayer — those transparent moments when the distance and the love overwhelm us in the same moment. There are times when it is the unexpected gift, thin space in which we can feel the presence of God, but we are not in charge and the words fail us.”  Read Schmidt’s entire article here.
