Saturday: The prayer of stillness
In Eastern Orthodox Christianity, there is a tradition called hesychasm (Greek: ἡσυχασμός, from ἡσυχία Greek esychía, “stillness, rest, quiet, silence”), which is the practice of prayerful stillness before God.
It is prayer without images, language, or other constructs.
How can you build hesychasm into your prayer life today?
