THOUGHTS ON PRAYER
WE NEED OTHERS'
It is good to enjoy
the prayers of holy people; but this is useful in so far as we, also, are prayerful
and seriously concerned with our salvation.
But you may ask:
"What need have I of the prayer of others if I am attending to my own
religious duty?" Paul did not say to his brethren, "I have no
need of your prayers," but "Brethren, pray for us." And
Peter when in prison had unceasing prayer made for him by the Church until
God sent His angel to deliver him.
Thou needest prayer
precisely because thou thinkest thou hast no need for it.
St. John Chrysostom
