Prayer is the most divine element that exists within man   It transports us to God and is the means by which we are bound to Him   Through prayer the communion of the Persons of the Trinity is made available to us and becomes the form of our own communication with God

Thus it is not a question of reciting this or that prayer, but rather that everything within us should become a prayer, that we should be praying in everything through all prayer
