Do you think that prayer has to be conscious? Can thoughts just be prayers, if they are good, well meaning thoughts? If you are thinking about someone and hoping they have a safe trip, is that a prayer? Is there a point in your life that you can reach where all of your thoughts are just prayers because your soul is completely seeking God? If you tell someone you’ll pray for them, is that a prayer in itself? Just the act of care and concern and recognition of need for God in that moment, I feel that that is a prayer as well. There is a peacefulness to life when life is a prayer…when prayer becomes wordless, timeless, even unconscious and still very apparent. God grants us His peace, His exhale, His communion. Then life is just living Joy.
