It's a risky thing to pray...

“It’s a risky thing to pray, and the danger is that our very prayers get between God and us. The great thing in prayer is not to pray, but to go directly to God. If saying your prayers is an obstacle to prayer, cut it out. Let Jesus pray. Thank God Jesus is praying. Enter into the prayer of Jesus. Let him pray in you….Let prayer pray within you, whether you know it or not. This means a deep awareness of our true inner identity.”

~ Thomas Merton
