“The grace of God stands always far away and watches man during prayer. If lowly thoughts move in him, at once it comes to him with countless helps. This occurs at the time of prayer more than any other time. Hence the devil wages attacks against man so that he does not come near God by his thoughts”. The Lord said on the tongue of the Prophet Isaiah “But on this one will I look: on him who is poor and of a contrite spirit, and who trembles at My word” (Isaiah 66:2).
St. Isaac the Syrian
