The most powerful prayer, one well nigh omnipotent, and the worthiest work of all is the outcome of a quiet mind. The quieter it is the more powerful, the worthier, the deeper, the more telling and more perfect the prayer is. To the quiet mind all things are possible. What is a quiet mind? A quiet mind is one which nothing weighs on, nothing worries, which, free from ties and from all self-seeking, is wholly merged into the will of God and dead as to its own. Such a one can do no deed however small but it is clothed with something of God's power and authority. Meister Eckhart
To pray like this (simply and humbly) is to remain by faith in the presence of God, with a hidden but constant desire to receive his grace according to our needs. Jean Pierre de Caussade
God is the substance of all form, God is infinite, God is all-inclusive, so the only thing to pray for is the realization of God. Joel Goldsmith
When by grace our courteous Lord shows himself to our soul, then we have what we desire and for the time we see nothing more to pray for, but all our mind and strength is gathered up in the sight of him. This is a high, unimaginable prayer. Julian of Norwich
When I am one with that wherein are all things, past, present and to come, all the same distance and all just the same, then they are all in God and all in me.. When praying for someone, for Henry or Conrad, I pray at my weakest. When praying for no one I pray at my strongest, and when I want nothing and make no request I am praying my best, for in God is no Henry or Conrad. Meister Eckhart
Prayer makes the soul one with God. Julian of Norwich
Prayer is an awareness of that which IS by seeing it – not making it so. Joel Goldsmith.
