When You Pray...


When you pray you meet the holy God in person.

In order to succeed in your life of prayer, try sincerely to make your conscience clear in relation to God, your neighbor and earthly possessions.
Nevertheless, do not hesitate to approach God in prayer, however bad you feel yourself to be; all our sins are but a drop compared to the ocean of God's love.

  1. We have all the reasons in the world to pray, we need God, we feel hopeless without Him, still we pray so little! Even if Christ Himself told us that the prayer is the only thing that is necessary.I feel so sad when I see how hard is to pray. The less you pray, the less you come closer to God...
    God, give me the desire to pray and be always with You!
