What does “pray without ceasing” really mean?

I prayed!!!
I PRAYED AND PRAYED AND PRAYED AND PRAYED
AND PRAYED AND PRAYED AND PRAYED AND PRAYED.
And when I had prayed
all of the prayers
worth
praying
God said,
“Now unfold your hands,
get up off of your knees
and
do
without
ceasing.”
(excerpt from the award winning author, Yolantha Harrison-Pace’s book HERE’S TO HAITI: Kiss, America, Kiss!!!. Pace shares:
“NOBODY KNOWS THE HAITI I’VE SEEN–
prayer
is the
doing tonic
that covers
all evil–
the action prayer to starving children–don’t just feed them provide a method for sustained gardening.
the action prayer to lack of water–don’t just build wells provide methods for maintaining the wells built.
the action prayer to illiteracy–provide education for ALL children, not just those who can afford uniforms!!!)
