Today I am sharing the next verse of "Silence" by St. Seraphim of Sarov:
When you pray, be like the flower
reaching up to the sun;
straight stemmed like a column.
Be open ready to accept all things without fear
and you will not lack light on your way.
I think being open before God, transparent, is so important. I have been thinking that the three words that call me into a deeper prayer are: openness, transparency, and surrender.
