"With me prayer is ...

... an uplifting of the heart; a glance towards heaven; a cry of
gratitude and love, uttered equally in sorrow and in joy. In a word,
it is something noble, supernatural, which expands my soul and unites
it to God. Sometimes when I am in such a state of spiritual dryness
that not a single good thought occurs to me, I say very slowly the
"Our Father," or the "Hail Mary," and these prayers suffice to take me
out of myself, and wonderfully refresh me." -- St. Therese of Lisieux
