Prayer requires trust...

"Prayer requires trust, closeness, an almost symbolic struggle, not with an adversarial God, but with a Lord who is full of blessing and who always remains mysterious, always seems unattainable. … And if the object of desire is the relationship with God, His blessing and His love, then the fight can only culminate in the gift of oneself to God, recognizing our own weakness, which we defeat at the very moment we surrender ourselves to God's merciful love.'' Pope Benedict XVI, May 25, 2011
