It is a great delusion to think that the times of prayer ought to differ from other times. 

You need not cry very loud; he is nearer to us than we are aware of.

We ought to act with God in the greatest simplicity, 
speak to Him frankly and plainly, 
and implore His assistance in our affairs. 

God regards not the greatness of the work but the love with which it is performed. 

Our biggest mistake is to think that a time of prayer 
is different from any other time. 
It is all one. 

Prayer is nothing else than a sense of God’s presence.

 Our only business is to love and delight ourselves in God. 

God does not ask much of you : 
a little remembrance from time to time, a little adoration

. We need only to realize that God is close to us and to turn to Him at every moment.
