Prayer aplenty. (spirituality cafe).
"Outside the Divine Office ... I do not have the courage to force myself to search out beautiful prayers in books. There are so many of them it really gives me a headache, and each prayer is more beautiful than the others. I cannot recite them all and not knowing which to choose, I do like children who do not know how to read. I say very simply to God what I wish to say, without composing beautiful sentences, and He always understands me.
"For me, prayer is an aspiration of the heart, it is a simple glance directed to heaven, it is a cry of gratitude and love in the midst of trial as well as joy." (http://thelittleflower,org, an online resource of Carmelite spirituality)
