Wisdom from the desert

Posted: Friday March 15 2013 in Lent

Brothers: How should we pray?
Saint Macarius: There is no need of much speaking in our prayers. Stretch out your hands and say, ‘Lord, have mercy upon me as Thou wilt and as Thou seest best.’ If your mind is disquieted, then say, ‘Help Thou me.’ He knows well what is best for us. Of His own will He grants us mercy.”
