On Prayer

“Prayer is the travel of the soul between emptiness and fullness, between misery and mercy, between inability to help ourselves and complete ability in Him to help us. Prayer is one depth crying out to another depth; it is the depth of our necessities crying out to the depth of the fullness of God.  Prayer is the messenger of the soul by which the soul keeps intimate and familiar correspondence with heaven”.

– Andrew Gray, From “Loving Christ and Fleeing Temptation”
