It's praying about everything.
It's being with Him.
It's hanging out with Him at all times.
It's focusing on Him as we do all we do.

Yes. Practicing the presence of God is prayer. Sometimes it's with words and sometimes it's just being with Him. Regardless, it's turning heart and mind to Him at all times.
