Train yourself to pray for the sake of praying:
Saint Isaac was asked: “How do we learn to pray?”
He responded: “By praying.”
There is no doubt that prayer, like any spiritual activity,
“comes down from the Father of lights.“ (James 1:17).
Seek it as did the disciples who said:
“Lord, teach us to pray.“ (Luke 11:1).
Say to Him:
Allow me, O’Lord, to pray, and the sweet seclusion to be with You.
I do not know how to pray, O’Lord, so teach me how.Grant me the appropriate feelings for prayer. Speak to me, O’Lord, that I may speak with You.
May the prayers of Our Lady the Holy St. Virgin Mary, and of all the Saints be with us.
