The Sunrise of the Soul

Prayer is the sunrise of the soul. Prayer quiets negative passions. Prayer helps restore our awareness of God. Prayer is an act of humility, stemming from a mindfulness of our inadequacy. Prayer and humility go hand in hand: prayer deepens humility and humility deepens prayer. Prayer prompts us to reach out in compassion to the suffering and weak, and helps us embrace all of humanity.

Prayer slows down the frenzied pace of life. Prayer helps us flee from the storm of negative inner thoughts and the noise that engulfs modern life. Prayer creates the unruffled calmness required to encounter God. To neglect prayer is to neglect God. Prayer is the only weapon we need.
