Aspects of the wordless way of praying also known as contemplative prayer. First written as occasional papers, which can be used one at a time for reflection.

The cultivation of an inner life of prayer has always formed an essential part of the Christian way. Many long for silence and stillness, yet the words ‘contemplative prayer’ can seem to denote some specialist method of prayer. Sandy Ryrie, using the more accessible phrase ‘prayer of silence’, draws on Church tradition and on his own experience to describe this wordless way of praying.
