from the school of prayer

 :: prayer rug woven out of my skirts from Suriname ::

when we pray like this we simply sit in silence…this time spent with God is not listening; it does not need attentiveness; it is sitting in each other’s loving presence, glad to be together, whatever else is going on…this daily period of silence in which we expect nothing from God and ask for nothing brings life to the prayer of every Christian.
