What does it mean to pray without ceasing? The unceasing prayer is a wonderful way of living always in God's presence. Brother Lawrence shares simply, “There is no mode of life in the world more pleasing and more full of delight than continual conversation with God.” Although this might sound wonderful, it also sounds like it is too difficult to do. But we can be encouraged with such a cloud of witnesses who know this as their reality. St. Paul himself encourages us six times in the New Testament to pray without ceasing.
