"There are more tears shed over answered prayers than over unanswered prayers."
Saint Teresa of Avila
“Prayer is not asking. Prayer is putting oneself in the hands of God, at His disposition, and listening to His voice in the depth of our hearts.”
"Pray as though everything depended on God. Work as though everything depended on you."
“Pray, hope, and don't worry. Worry is useless. God is merciful and will hear your prayer.”
“For me, prayer is a surge of the heart; it is a simple look turned toward heaven, it is a cry of recognition and of love, embracing both trial and joy.”
Thérèse de Lisieux
Prayer is the raising of the mind to God.
We must always remember this.
The actual words matter less.”
Pope John XXIII
