"Jesus, to be sure, often spent long times alone in prayer.
But he was also deeply at home where there was a party,
a kingdom party, a celebration of the fact that God was at last taking charge."

- N. T. Wright

Pray Without Ceasing 

I always wondered how anyone, outside of monastery walls, could devote themselves to being in prayer at all times.  Early on in my prayer life, I thought that praying was always  in words. I had to use words in my mind or say them out loud for it to be prayer.  As I have been learning lately, prayer is being in His presence.  Since He is always present with us, we can pray with words or in silence.  We can actively pray or we can "be still" with Him.  I can use my enjoyment of nature as prayer.  When we look up at the night sky and gaze in wonder at the beauty of the stars we are praying. If we look for Jesus in our ordinary and mundane day, we are praying.  If we are aware of His presence and even briefly turn our hearts to Him, with or without words, we are praying.  Just maybe this is what Paul had in mind when he penned  "pray without ceasing," in 1 Thessalonians 5:17.
