"Before every thing we have to carefully observe the principles of the Bible which guide us to proper prayer: we enter our room, close the door and pray.
But how do we realize that matter practically? Is it not by isolating the worldly thoughts and the vain concerns and enter into a close fellowship with the Lord?
And what is the meaning of the closed door in prayer?
Is it not stillness, the complete holy quietness, and the humble closed worshipping lips in front of Him Who tests the hearts?!" (Psalm 7:9).
St. John Cassian
