Prayer Is...

Prayer is:

  • the seed of gentleness
  • the spirit of trust
  • the seeking of peace
  • the absence of anger
  • a remedy against grief
  • a salve to depression
  • the unbinding of shackles and
  • freedom to the heart.

'Whatever you have endured out of love of wisdom will bear fruit at the time of prayer'. ~ Abba Nilus

'Do not be always wanting everything to turn out as you think it should, but rather as God pleases, then you will be undisturbed and thankful in your prayer'. ~ Abba Nilus#

As the lungs pant for oxygen so too the soul lives for prayer.

'True conversion gives a man security, but it does not allow him to leave off being watchful.' ~ Charles Spurgeon
