Effects of prayer

Prayer has a soporific effect, A result most easy to detect. We cannot feel the graces they leave delicate traces -- a more determined will, flight from a particular ill; insight into our defects, a more tender reflex. True effects to be sure, enough to help us endure, the battle against drowsy that leaves prayer feeling lousy.

  1. Haha-very good! We can't take for granted those gentle but real inspirations in prayer.
    Have you ever fallen asleep at length during prayer? It is a most peaceful state--a type of prayer in itself.
