A quote on “prayer” from “for lovers of God everywhere” by Saint Theophan the Recluse


Images, however sacred
they may be, retain
the attention outside,
whereas at the time of prayer
the attention must be within –
in the heart. The concentration
of attention in the heart –
this is the starting point of prayer.

β€”Saint Theophan the Recluse

from for lovers of God everywhere

  1. Yes completely true and it is from within that we need to do our prayers with implicit faith.
