A quote on prayer

Thinking back to the sermon Sunday, and how I briefly stated that prayer itself is a form of healthy submission, this quote in a devotional today seems worth sharing as a supplement. The switch to thinking about prayer this way is not easy, or is learning to recognize that still small voice:

Prayer is not asking. Prayer is putting oneself in the hands of God, at His disposition, and listening to His voice in the depth of our hearts. — Mother Teresa

One thought on “A quote on prayer

  1. Thanks for sharing this quote from Mother Teresa. The insights this simple view point provides is a good one to reflect on, digest and internalize. Our prayers are so often about what we need and want (for ourselves and others). But to take the risk of placing our concerns in his hands and having faith that he will take care of it, that is an entirely a different matter, it seems. May we take that chance and listen for his voice in our hearts, as he moves each of us and CCC as a whole, in a direction that glorifies Him!
