THOUGHTS ON PRAYER




 

 

NIGHT PRAYER

 

When you lie down on your bed, remember with thanksgiving the blessings and providence of God. Thereupon, filled with this good thought, you will rejoice in spirit and the sleep of your body will mean sobriety of the soul. The closing of your eyes gives you a knowledge of God and your silence, giving you a feeling of goodness, will glorify God,  giving Him from the heart praises that rise on high. For when there is no evil in man, then even thanksgiving alone is more pleasing to God than costly sacrifices.

 

St. Anthony, the hermit
