Prayer is often a response to what God is communicating to us. Fr. Benson says that all we have to do is ‘to keep ourselves continually gazing upon Him,’ returning his gaze that is assuring us of His love, comforting us and calming our fear, assuring us of His presence even in the face of all that trouble us. Gazing communicates a message of love that transcends the boundaries of language, like an infant with its mother.
