Pray First

Pray first

and pray always–

every good thing

springs forth from the fertile soil

of prayer.

 

Prayer is the mother

of all virtues,

and the womb

of all noble thoughts.

 

In prayer

we reach out to the Spirit,

and His Fruits

are placed in our hands.

 

There is no thievery

in prayer.

It is supplication,

and a gift of mercy—

freely given.

 

Prayer is a fertile field,

filled with wheat,

flowing in waves,

sun-drenched and golden.

 

The very Bread

of Life

is risen in the ovens

of prayer.

 

Pray first

and pray always.
