TRUE PRAYER is undistracted, prolonged, performed with a contrite heart an
alert intellect. The vehicle of prayer is everywhere humility, and prayer is a
manifestation of humility. For being conscious of our own weakness, we invoke
the power of GOD.
PRAYER unites one with GOD, being a divine conversation and spiritual
communion with the Being that is most beautiful and highest.
PRAYER IS FORGETTING EARTHLY THINGS,
AN ASCENT TO HEAVEN.
WE FLEE TO GOD.
PRAYER is truly a heavenly armor, and is alone can keep safe those who have
dedicated themselves to God. Prayer is the common medicine for purifying
ourselves from the passions, for hindering sin and curing our faults. Prayer is
an inexhaustible treasure, an unruffled harbor, the foundation of serenity, the
root and mother of myriad's of blessings.
