Teresa-of-Ávila-Gerard

Prayer is not just spending time with the Lord. It is partly that–but if it ends there, it is fruitless. No, prayer is dynamic, Authentic prayer changes us–unmasks us–strips us–indicates where growth is needed. Authentic prayer never leads to complacency, but needles us–makes us uneasy at times. It leads us to true self-knowledge, to true humility.

~~Saint Teresa of Avila
