“We should seek not so much to pray but to become prayer.”
Francis of Assisi

“He does not ask much of us, merely a thought of Him from time to time, a little act of adoration, sometimes to ask for His grace, sometimes to offer Him your sufferings, at other times to thank Him for the graces, past and present, He has bestowed on you, in the midst of your troubles to take solace in Him as often as you can. Lift up your heart to Him during your meals and in company; the least little remembrance will always be the most pleasing to Him. One need not cry out very loudly; He is nearer to us than we think.”
Brother Lawrence

“The wise man in the storm prays God not for safety from danger but for deliverance from fear.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Marilynne Robinson

“If you want to protect me, prayer is just as powerful a weapon as that gun you carry.”
Karen Witemeyer
