“Dear God,
I am so afraid to open my clenched fists!
Who will I be when I have nothing left to hold on to?
Who will I be when I stand before you with empty hands?
Please help me to gradually open my hands
and to discover that I am not what I own,
but what you want to give me.”
Henri J.M. Nouwen, The Only Necessary Thing: Living a Prayerful Life
“Prayer is the center of the Christian life. It is the only necessary thing. It is living with God in the here and now.”
Henri J.M. Nouwen, The Only Necessary Thing: Living a Prayerful Life
