81 Action is worthless without prayer; prayer is worth more with sacrifice.
88 You seek friendship of those who, with their conversation and affection, with their company, help you to bear more easily the exile of this world—although sometimes those friends fail you. I don’t see anything wrong with that
But how is it that you do not seek everyday, more eagerly, the company of that great friend who will never fail you?
90 You don’t know how to pray? Put yourself in the presence of God, and as soon as you have said, “Lord, I don’t know how to pray!” you can be sure you’ve already begun.
96 It is Jesus who speaks: “Amen I say to you, ask and it shall be given to you, seek and you shall find, knock and it shall be opened to you.”
Pray! In what human venture can you have greater guarantee of success?
—from The Way by Saint Josemaria Escriva
