"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." - St. Therese of Lisieux

In what ways have I so far communicated with God? What does it mean to "pray always"? Why is prayer essential for our relationship with God and with others? How do we participate in God's work through prayer?
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed by thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
St. Teresa of Avila
We will spend eternity with God in heaven, how much time am I willing to spend with Him here on earth?
