No one can partake of the Divine Energies without prayer, which would end up trying to to this by our own effort. Indeed, the Orthodox take Paul's admonition to "Pray without ceasing" literally.
Hesychasm (inner silence) as practiced by Saint Gregory Palamas is prayer at its most intimate with the Holy Trinity. This is the only way to develope Baptismal Grace into the Grace of Pentecost.
