"Prayer...is in one aspect glory and blessedness; in another, it is toil and travail, battle and agony."
The Hidden Life of Prayer by D.M. M'Intyre
Even the sparrow finds a home and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, at your altars, O LORD of Hosts, my King and my God. Blessed are those who dwell in your house, ever singing your praise.
