de Sales: honesty in prayer

    For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil.
    —Ecclesiastes 12:14 (NIV)
    ... if you lie to God’s Holy Spirit, you can scarcely wonder that He refuses you His comfort.
    ... François de Sales (1567-1622), Introduction to the Devout Life [1609], London: Rivingtons, 1876, IV.xiv, p. 334 (see the book)
    See also Eccl. 12:14; Matt. 6:5; Mark 4:22; Luke 8:16-17; 12:2; Rom. 8:26; 1 Cor. 4:5
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have opened up the secrets of my heart.
