Prayer, Communication as the Milk of God
“Prayer is the light of the soul, true knowledge of God, a mediator between God and men. Prayer lifts the soul into the heavens where it hugs God in an indescribable embrace. The soul seeks the milk of God like a baby crying for the breast. It fulfills its own vows and receives in exchange gifts better than anything that can be seen or imagined.”
Father, we seek to use our words to fulfill your purposes and to be filled; to feed others and be fed. Thank you for your indescribable embrace of my body, mind, and soul.
– John Chrysostom (347-407 AD)
