The wordless prayer you describe is, I think, what Quakers call "holding in the Light". It seems much more valid and meaningful to me than the spoken prayers where our words (or mine anyway) are hopelessly inadequate, and which can so easily fall into telling God what he ought to be doing.
I like the tangible nature of that cross you have. It means literally holding on to the truth of Jesus having died for the sin of the world.

Good to hear from you again Dave, and thank you for your comment. I hope you're doing OK and keeping well. My own prayer and spirituality is often helped by that which is visual, tactile, tangible - times too when contemplative silence before a text, or intentional reflection on that which is mystery, and when adoration is preferred to interrogation, and wonder displaces analysis.
