..." The Lord gives prayer to those who pray. Realize, however, that prayer requires struggle,even to the hour of death. Be satisfied with the quality of your prayer as it is. Do not aspire to tenderness and tears, but when they come, stop and wait until they pass of their own accord. Prayer and memory of God are equivalents; one can walk or be doing something, and think of God - and this is also prayer.
Try not to condemn anyone, nor to have hostility towards anyone; otherwise your prayer will come to nothing. The Lord give you wisdom. "
