What is Prayer?

Prayer is so simple
It is like quietly opening a door
And slipping into the very presence of God
There in the stillness
To listen to his voice
Perhaps to petition
Or only to listen
It matters not
Just to be there
In his presence
Is prayer.

   ~ THE PRACTICE OF THE PRESENCE OF GOD is the Conversations and Letters of Brother Lawrence of the Resurrection, a Carmelite lay brother who in the 1600's discovered a way to live our lives in a constant conversation with God.

The Light Heart Edition is taken from an Italian version that was available in 1996 when all other editions were either out of print or not in demand at the time
