The Wise Old Monk ~

I told him it has become hard to pray. He said the slightest calling to mind to do it is a prayer in itself.

And even the desire to pray comes from Him...He who desires us much more than we desire Him...

The desire to pray is God knocking at your door!

Somehow, praying makes me feel better.

Please, let me drink water from the jug
This love is not a short-lived fancy
It is the daily prayer, the year-after-year fast
I live it, like an act of worship, till the end of my life

from the Poetry of Rumi, 13th-century Muslim mystic
