Plants can also pray?

Trying to track down a quote (or did I make this up?)

I remember reading (this feels like something I read in fiction, but I could be way off) something along the lines of "A tree, by simply existing, worships god." (or maybe, "A tree, by being a tree, worships god") Perhaps something about a prayer of existence. The basic idea was that our existence was a form of prayer.

I know this is vague, but this comes back to me as a question from time to time.

Not quite the same, but there is a quote from the Talmud that "Every blade of grass has an angel that bends over it and whispers, 'Grow, grow.'"

Response by poster: I remembered the first line. Thank you.

(I kept looking for existence/worship tree prayer in google, which was much less successful. I bow to your google-fu)
