''There is a moment between intending to pray and actually praying that is as dark and silent as any moment in our lives. It is the split second between thinking about prayer and really praying. For some of us, the split second may last for decades. It seems, then, that the greatest obstacle to prayer is the simple matter of beginning, the simple exertion of the will, the starting, the acting, the doing. How easy it is, and yet -- between us and the possibility of prayer there seems to be a great gulf fixed: an abyss of our own making that separates us from God.'' The movement from this ''moment'' to the 'clinging' that defines the goal of prayer is the subject of this sequel to Griffin's earlier work, 'Turning'.
