Pray without ceasing. In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
1 Thess. v. 17, 18.

As Thou, Lord, an immortal soul
Hast breathed into me,
So let my soul be breathing forth
Immortal thanks to Thee.
John Mason.

LET us not be content to pray morning and evening, but let us live in prayer all day long. Let this prayer, this life of love, which means death to self, spread out from our seasons of prayer, as from a centre, over all that we have to do. All should become prayer, that is, a loving consciousness of God’s presence, whether it be social intercourse or business. Such a course as this will ensure you a profound peace.
Francois de la Mothe Fenelon.

How are we to fulfil our Lord’s injunction, “that men ought always to pray, and not to faint”? By the heart’s prayer, which consists in a constant habitual love of God, trusting Him, submitting in all things to His will; and by giving a never failing heed to His voice, as heard within the conscience.
Jean Nicolas Grou
