Beauty of Prayer

God himself will teach you the art of prayer.
We need no words to teach us how to see, for seeing is a natural faculty.
Neither can we learn from others the beauty of prayer;
 its interior ways are made known to us by God alone,
 who gives to each the necessary knowledge and
bestows the gift of prayer on those who pray.
~St. John Climacus, Ladder of Divine Ascent
