Is not a mental exercise, a game.
Opens our core, our heart to the Almighty,
The Creator of the universe.
Such prayer is necessarily humble because
He is God and we are not.
No room for pride;
He knows us better than we know ourselves.
Annunciation by Fra Angelico (San Marco Cell 3) 1440-42.
Stark prayer is rooted in this reality.
All we can do is place ourselves in His Presence, in the Light,
Letting go of all demands and control,
Open to receive His transforming Love
“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.”
