Missional Prayer: Wisdom from Teresa of Avila

The continual word to our faith community for several weeks has been pray, pray, pray! I found this great quote from Teresa of Avila in Benedict Groeschel’s book The Journey Toward God:

“I certainly pity those who serve the Lord at their own cost, because for those who practice prayer the Lord Himself pays the cost, since through their little labor He gives them delight so that with the help of this delight they might suffer trials.” p 36

I’m learning of this delight as we continue the journey deeper into God. Prayer is becoming the breath that sustains us in mission.
