After a dramatic religious conversion, young soldier Nicholas Herman decided to devote his life to following God and learning more about Christ. Also He joined a monastery and took the name Brother Lawrence of the Resurrection. He spent the rest of his life working here.

And He discovered a profound truth about having a relationship with God: Experiencing and practicing His presence anywhere and everywhere.

Brother Lawrence gleaned so much WISDOM from praying throughout each day which today after over 300 years still remains TRUTHS to reckon with.

Brother Lawrence died  (Feb. 12) 324 years ago, but his teachings about prayer are just as relevant today as they were back then.

HERE ARE SOME OF HIS QUOTES –

 

On God’s Nearness

You need not cry very loud: He is nearer to us than we think.

On a Mindset of Prayer

One way to re-collect the mind easily in the time of prayer, and preserve it more in tranquillity, is not to let it wander too far in other times: you should keep it strictly in the presence of God; and being accustomed to think of Him often, you will find it easy to keep your mind calm in the time of prayer, or at least to recall it from its wanderings.

On Constant Prayer

There is not in the world a kind of life more sweet and delightful, than that of a continual conversation with God; those only can comprehend it who practice and experience it.

On Worship

We ought to propose to ourselves is to become, in this life, the most perfect worshippers of God we can possibly be, as we hope to be through all eternity.

On a Formula for Spirituality

That there needed neither art nor science for going to GOD, but only a heart resolutely determined to apply itself to nothing but Him, or for His sake, and to love Him only.

On Knowing God

The more we know Him, the more we will desire to know Him. As love increases with knowledge, the more we know God, the more we will truly love Him. We will learn to love Him equally in times of distress or in times of great joy.”
