Prayer is vital in coming to know Jesus. The more we pray the closer we come to God. Just like the more we surf, the better surfer we become.
“For me, prayer is a surge of the heart; it is a simple look turned toward heaven, it is a cry of recognition and of love, embracing both trial and joy.” – St ThéRèse of Lisieux
“Prayer is the raising of one’s mind and heart to God or the requesting of good things from God.” -St John Damascene
“Pray as though everything depended on God. Work as though everything depended on you.” – St Augustine
“He who prays most receives most.” – St. Alphonsus Liguori
