Grace and prayer.

In the spiritual life there are two great principles which should never be forgotten: Without grace we can do nothing (John 15:5); with it we can do all things (Philippians 4:13)….God places the treasure of his graces at our disposal, and its key is prayer. You desire more faith, more hope, more love: “Ask, and it shall be given to you.” Your good resolutions remain sterile, resulting always in the same failures: “Ask, and it shall be given to you.”

…Prayer will draw down into your soul the omnipotence of God, “It is stronger than all the demons,” says St. Bernard.
