Although I do not do it often enough, I enjoy the quiet times I create to be in contemplative prayer—not praying for specifics, but simply being with God in praise and thanksgiving. It is good to uncluttered my mind.
“Prayer is the breath of the soul, the life energy of the spirit. It is the story of the interplay between God and us. It is the link between the inner and the outer life. It has its own rhythm. It is its own reality. There is no formula for it beyond the need to nourish it with both words and silence.” Joan Chittister
