Prayer is the Simplest Thing

Servant of God Dorothy Day
"When I hear (seven-year-old Teresa) talk, hear her wise little comments on things I say, I feel certain as to her spiritual knowledge. About prayer, for instance, Freddy said that he did not know how to pray. Questioned by Teresa, he said that he merely repeated prayers after his mother. Teresa told him that all he had to do to pray was to think every now and then of God. ‘Just remember him,’ she said. ‘Like after I go to Communion in the morning, then lots of times during the day I suddenly remember that I’ve got God. That’s a prayer too’.”
