Thoughts on Prayer

Uncategorized Add comments

Prayer is the flower of gentleness and of freedom from anger.

Prayer is the fruit of joy and thankfulness

Prayer is the remedy for gloom and despondency.

Take care that, while appearing to cure someone else, you yourself do not remain uncured, in this way thwarting your prayer.

If you patiently accept what comes, you will always pray with joy.

If you endure something painful out of love for wisdom, you will find the fruit of this during prayer.

If you long for prayer, renounce all to gain all.
