The only thing to remember about prayer is to begin where you are. (Thomas Merton)

Deep down in me I knowed it was a lie, and He knowed it. You can't pray a lie - I found that out. (Mark Twain)

If governments knew how subversive contemplative prayer is, they would ban it. (Desmond Tutu)

Pray as you can, not as you can't. (Father Ted King, Dean Emeritus of Cape Town)

So this is how you swim inward. So this is how you flow outwards. So this is how you pray. (Mary Oliver)

Knowing God better

Here is one of the Spiritual Practices of the Day from the Spirituality and Practice website.
"Every human pleasure is meant to be a stepping-stone to knowing God better or to discovering some new aspect of God." 
— Thomas Keating in The Human Condition
To Practice This Thought: Acknowledge God's activity in that very moment whenever you are feeling happy. 
This is really a wonderful commitment to make and will go a long way both to alleviating whatever suffering we are prone to as well as being an act of compassion and witness to God's presence in the midst of others.
