“When praying, keep to the rule that it is better to say five words from the depth of your heart than ten thousand words with your tongue only.”        


St. John of Kronstadt

Thanks to John for being my source on this one.

    Sometimes my heart is so heavy that I’m only able to say five words, and then rely on the Holy Spirit to say the rest.


  2. Amen! (does the exclamation point count as a word?)

  4. I am always grateful God knows what I am praying even in the times it only seems I can say His name. Love this post Ray.
