Overview

To "pray without ceasing" has often been considered a practice reserved for those in contemplative religious communities. Today, however, we realize that unceasing prayer should not be linked to a particular kind of person or vocation but to life itself. To cultivate an attitude of prayerfulness, we need live only an ordinary, everyday existence. Our prayer, then, becomes eating, sleeping, relating--life itself.

In Pray Without Ceasing, Wayne Simsic introduces the practice of being mindful of God's presence in daily activities, directly inspired by Paul's message that we should pray always. Noticed or unnoticed, accepted or rejected, God remains at the center of our existence, calling us. Awakening to this truth in our everyday life invites us along a spiritual path to unceasing prayer.
