Prayer from the heart is sincere prayer

Prayer from the heart is sincere prayer. Always pray to the Lord from your heart. The Lord does not require philosophy from us. We should pray from the heart, as to our Father: “O Lord, help every soul, and do not forget me, either. Help everyone to find peace and to love Thee, as the angels love Thee. Give us, too, the strength to love Thee as Thy Most Holy Mother loves Thee and Thy holy angels. Give me, too, the strength to love Thee boundlessly!” – Elder Thaddeus of Vitovnica  (Our Thoughts Determine Our Lives: the Life and Teachings of Elder Thaddeus of Vitovnica , St. Herman of Alaska Brotherhood.)
