When you pray....

One of my friends here presented me with this lovely poem by St. Seraphim of Sarov - someone I had never heard of before!

When you pray, be like the mountain
in stillness, in silence;
thoughts rooted in eternity.
Do nothing; just sit, just be;
and you will harvest the fruit of your prayer.

There are five verses, but as each merits reflection, I am planning to put just one verse a day. I just have found that it is worth praying over each and hope you will do the same.
