pray contemplatively

To pray contemplatively is to abandon one’s idea of how and why it all works:
God, justice, or prayer.
It is to abandon ourselves to trust in the living presence and reality of the divine,
mysteriously at work within the darkness of the human condition -
a living presence apparently not in the business of straightening out
everything we would do, or to our specifications.”-Patricia Loring
