CQOD: 02/11/07 -- Teresa: prayer

Christian Quotation of the Day

February 11, 2007
    And when he rose from prayer, he came to the disciples and found them sleeping for sorrow, and he said to them, "Why are you sleeping? Rise and pray that you may not enter into temptation."
    -- Luke 22:45-46 (ESV)

    We must not content ourselves with liberty and consolation and gust in prayer. We must come out from prayer the most rapturous and sweet, only to do harder and ever harder works for God and our neighbors. Otherwise the prayer is not good, and the gusts are not from God.
    ... Saint Teresa of Avila (1515-1582)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You strengthen me in prayer.
