“Remember that not one word is lost during Prayer if you speak from your heart.”

“Be true to God always and in everything. If you say the Prayer ‘Our Father’ pronounce each word sincerely, with reverence, fixing your mind and heart upon God alone, not paying attention to anything or anybody around you. If you say any other prayer, say it also with all your Soul, not with your heart divided, not paying undue attention to anything or anybody.”

“Our requests are necessary expressly to strengthen our faith, through which alone we can be saved. ‘By grace are we saved through faith’ (Eph 2:8). ‘O woman, great is your faith’ (Mt. 15:28). For this reason the Lord made the woman Pray earnestly, in order to awaken her faith and to strengthen it.”
