“Prayer is essentially God’s work.”

“Prayer is essentially God’s work.
Our part is to give time, do our best to keep attention,
surrender ourselves as best we can…

When we really grasp that prayer
is essentially God’s business, not ours,
we will never talk of failure,
no matter how unsatisfactory prayer seems to us.”

-Ruth Burrows, Carmelite sister
