Saint Ignatius Brianchaninov on Prayer

St. Ignatius Brianchaninov

God does not need our prayers! He knows what we need even before we ask. He is the all-merciful, and he pours his abundant bounties even on those who do not ask him. It is for us that prayer is indispensable; it appropriates man to God.
