Jacques Ellul (1912-1994) French philosopher, and theologian wrote, “Prayer is not a discourse. It is a form of life, the life with God. That is why it is not confined to the moment of verbal statement. The latter (verbalization) can only be the secondary expression of the relationship with God, an overflow from the encounter between the living God and the living person.”
Prayer becomes an atmosphere much more than something verbal. The presence of the Father within us is combining the two atmospheres… his and ours and trying to make them one. Presence needs no words or rituals it only needs presence.
“I and the Father are one.” Jesus
