The Ground of Our Praying – Julian of Norwich

Prayer is the deliberate and persevering action of the soul. It is true and enduring, and full of grace. Prayer fastens the soul to God and makes it one with his will, through the deep inward working of the Holy Spirit.

I am the ground of your praying. First, it is my will that you should have this; then I make it your will, too: then I make you ask for it, and you do so. How then should you not have what you pray for?

Everything our good Lord makes us to pray for he has ordained that we should have since before time began.

When we come to heaven, our prayers shall be waiting for us as part of our delight with endless joyful thanks from God.
