“Prayer cannot be measured on a scale of success or failure because it is God's work - and God always succeeds. When we believe we have failed at prayer, it is because we decided what shape our prayer should have and are now frustrated that there is nothing we can do to implement our ambition. Prayer is nothing more or less than the interior action of the Trinity at the level of being. This we cannot control; we can only reverently submit.”
Michael Casey, Toward God: The Ancient Wisdom of Western Prayer

“Prayer is not a matter of actively thinking about God. It does have a mental component – one of its tasks is to re-form and re-educate our thoughts – but it is not primarily a work of the mind. Efforts to conjure up words, concepts or images are not good beginnings. Its source is an act of love and desire that wells up from the heart. The contents of the mind during prayer spring from the will.”
Michael Casey, Toward God: The Ancient Wisdom of Western Prayer

“One of the great dangers faced by monastic practitioners is that, after a few months or a few years or a few decades, we become weary of investing so much effort in the spiritual pursuit with so little evidence of having made very much progress.”
Michael Casey, Seventy-Four Tools for Good Living
