∼ Words from the Church Fathers ∼
Consistently pray in all things, so that you might not do anything without the help of God … Whoever does or busies himself with anything without prayer does not succeed in the end. Concerning this, the Lord said: “Without Me you can’t do anything”. (John 15:5)
– St. Mark the Ascetic, Homilies, 2.94,166
Give your intentions in prayer to God, Who knows everyone, even before our birth. And do not ask that everything will be according to your will, because a man does not know what is profitable for him. But say to God: Let Thy will be done! For He does everything for our benefit.
– St. Gennadius of Constantinople, The Golden Chain, 47
