de Sales: praying well

Friday, August 12, 2016
    And though the Lord give you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, yet your Teacher will not hide himself anymore, but your eyes shall see your Teacher. And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left.
    —Isaiah 30:20-21 (ESV)
    He prays well who is so absorbed with God that he does not know he is praying.
    ... François de Sales (1567-1622)
    See also Gen. 5:24; Ps. 25:8-9; 119:105; Pr. 3:5-6; Isa. 30:20-21; 58:11
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I thank You for Your continual presence.
