Love to pray. Feel often during the day the need for prayer, and take the trouble to pray. Prayer enlarges the heart until it is capable of containing God’s gift of himself. Ask and seek, and your heart will grow big enough to receive him and keep him as your own.
- From A Gift for God by Mother Teresa
I appreciate the phrase “take the trouble to pray” because that can often be what it takes. I also am reminded that prayer is not as much we asking God to do things (as we usually make it to be), but rather prayer is a time where our heart is aligned and shaped by God’s Spirit.
