ANY GOOD CONVERSATION consists of both listening and speaking. In a natural rhythm — a dance — both partners move and respond to each other in time to the music. This is no less true of the process of prayer. After a time of listening to God in the stillness, we are moved to respond. … Wait for the words to arise from deep within.
