Prayer of the Heart

“The prayer of the heart is a prayer that does not allow us to limit our relationship with God to interesting words or pious emotions. By it’s very nature such prayer transforms our whole being into Christ precisely because it opens the eyes of our soul to the truth of ourselves as well as to the truth of God. In our heart we come to see ourselves as sinners embraced by the mercy of God.” Henri Nouwen
