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 helps us flee from the storm
of inner thoughts
and the noise that engulfs modern life.

To neglect prayer is to neglect God.

Prayer creates the unruffled calmness
required to encounter God.

Prayer is the only weapon we need.

Prayer slows down the frenzied pace of life.

Prayer prompts us to reach out in compassion
to the suffering and weak,
and helps us embrace all of humanity.

Prayer is the sunrise of the soul.
