Remaining still, full of faith...

Be still before the LORD and
wait patiently for him: do not fret... - Psalm 37:7

"We should go to prayer with deep humility
and an awareness of our nothingness.
We must invoke the help of the Holy Spirit
and that of our good angel,
and then remain still in God's presence,
full of faith that He is more in us
than we are in ourselves."
St. Jane Frances de Chantal
