There is a certain class of demons that can only be chased away by prayer–the demons of deafness to God, dumbness in thanksgiving, self-sufficiency, worry, despair and solitude. But there is another class of demons that can only be chased away by action–the demons of illusion, sentimentality, infantilism, narcissism and laziness. So if we cultivate prayer exclusively, we harbor the second lot, and if we cultivate action exclusively, we harbor the first lot.
