Lord, teach us to pray

“Prayer is man’s richest boon. It is his light, his nourishment, and his very life, for it brings him into communication with God, who is light, nourishment and life. But of ourselves we know not how we should pray as we ought; we must needs, therefore, address ourselves to Jesus Christ, and say to him as the Apostles did: ‘Lord, teach us how to pray.’” ~Dom Prosper Guéranger, OSB, The Liturgical Year
