I wrote the following in 1996:
I am thinking of what happens when a person walks through the world, carrying Jesus in her heart, in a continual, chosen atmosphere of prayer.
I know there are people like this all over the world, and what effects are made upon situations by the prayers they quietly offer?
Can it change a family or work environment if a person prays silently in the midst of it? Of course we know it can, and I think we would say that it inevitably does. It is a kind of heart monasticism carried into first one family and then another, into a mall, onto a bus.
It is the whole essence of the cloistered heart.
