“The Power of Prayer” by David Mueller

Prayer – Fifteenth Day of September

Prayer.

“We ought always to pray.” — St. Luke 18.1.

FIFTEENTH DAY.

Prayer, that is all vocal prayer, should be humble, fervent, persevering, accompanied by resignation and confidence, considering that we are in the presence of God, and that we speak to Him before Whom the heavenly virtues tremble and are sized with fear and respect. — St. Magdalene of Pazzi.

St. Francis of Sales in his exterior was as truly devout when he prayed alone as when in the church or in public. He always knelt in a becoming posture, with his eyes closed or modestly cast down in order to be more recollected. His soul ceased not to pour forth holy aspirations, so filled was he with the holiness and goodness of God. To see him in this position was sufficient to touch other with sentiments of piety. In time of spiritual dryness he imagined himself a statue placed in an apartment, at the desire of his master Who placed him there. “O my God,” he would say, “I am here to please Thee; I desire nothing more.”

Prayer.

My God, grant that in all my prayers I may be mindful of Thy sovereign majesty, Thy infinite holiness and admirable goodness. During spiritual dryness and weariness may I be resigned to Thy will, to await Thy disposal in all things!
