    Commemoration of Ephrem of Syria, Deacon, Hymnographer, Teacher, 373
Trust in him at all times, O people;
    pour out your hearts to him,
    for God is our refuge.
    —Psalm 62:8 (NIV)
    He walks as in the presence of God that converses with Him in frequent prayer and frequent communion; that runs to Him in all his necessities, that asks counsel of Him in all his doubtings; that opens all his wants to Him; that weeps before Him for his sins; that asks remedy and support for his weakness; that fears Him as a judge, reverences Him as a lord, obeys Him as a father, and loves Him as a patron.
    ... Jeremy Taylor (1613-1667), Holy Living [1650], in The Whole Works of the Right Rev. Jeremy Taylor, D.D., v. III, London: Longman, Brown, Green & Longmans, 1847, I.iii, p. 27 (see the book)
