THOUGHTS ON PRAYER


 

 

 

 

 

AN EXHORTATION TO PRAYER

 

We ought to exhort each other to prayer; for we have not other hope amidst the manifold evils of this life than to knock in prayer at our Father's door. He knows what we really need. 

 

Imagine yourself sick and under a physician and you ask for a drink of wine. Do not hesitate to ask but if he hesitates to give, do not take it to heart. Now, if this is how you will behave in the hands of a physician of the body, how much more in the hands of the Creator and Restorer both of  thy body and soul?

 

St. Augustine
