True prayer is a realization that God constitutes our being and our life. God is the Father, and God is the Son, and all that God the Father is, God the Son is; and all that God the Father has, God the Son has: all the dominion, the grace, and the glory. To pray without ceasing is to rejoice all day long that the grace of God is working in us and through us without our telling God or 30 A PARENTHESIS IN ETERNITY pleading with Him, without our asking or desiring anything from God because He has already given all good to us, and we have only to be still to realize it and show it forth.

Then we find that through this experience we live and move and have our being in God, and God in us. Mind and body cannot contain God, and He is so far beyond our imagination that no one can draw pictures of Him or hold mental ideas or concepts of what He really is.
