prayer of the heart

The prayer of the heart is the source

of all good, refreshing

the soul as if it were a garden.

~St. Gregory of Sinai (d.1360), Egypt


As I water my garden this morning, I notice how the withered leaves reach upward, embracing the nourishment and giving thanks for life-giving sustenance, leaving them feeling whole again–just as my soul feels after communing in prayer with my Creator.
