THOUGHTS ON PRAYER




PRAYING WITH GOD

 

Prayer unites the soul to God, for although the soul may always be like God in nature and substance, it is often unlike him in condition, through human sin. 

 

Prayer makes the soul like God when the soul wills as God wills; then it is like God in condition, as it is in nature.

 

And so he teaches us to pray and to have firm trust that we shall have what we pray for, because everything which is done would be done, even though we had never prayed for it. 

 

But God's love is so great that He regards us as partners in his good work; and so he moves us to pray for what it pleases him to do, for whatever prayer or good desire comes to us by his gift he will repay us for and give us eternal reward.
