Do you seriously wish to travel the road to devotion? Of so, look for a good man to guide and lead you. This is the most important of all words of advice.

It is not enough for me that God has given me grace once, but He must give it always. I ask, that I may receive; and when I have received, I ask again. I am am covetous of receiving God's bounty. He is never slow in giving, nor am I ever weary of receiving. The more I drink, the more thirsty I become.
St. Jerome

Yes.. we have to keep praying and praying! Cheesy And it's good for us to! We need to pray! We need to have a healthy prayer life!

Have great confidence, for it is necessary not to hold back one's desires, but to believe in God that if we try we shall little by little, even though it may not be soon, reach the state the saints did with His help.

I agree that to have a deeply intimate relationship with God you must develope an honest ,confident, heartfelt prayer life. I like what the catechism says on prayer
2564. Christian prayer is a covenant relationship between God and man in Christ. It is the action of God and of man, springing forth from both the Holy Spirit and ourselves, wholly directed to the Father, in union with the human will of the Son of God made man.

Our wish, our object, our chief preoccupation must be to form Jesus in ourselves, to make his spirit, His devotion, His affections, His desire and His disposition live and reign there.

So true, I think the world is full of puffed ups  Grin
Even the devil has theoretical knowledge.

'Not always fall of leaf, nor ever spring,
No endless night, yet not eternal day;
The saddest birds a season find to sing,
The roughest storm a calm may soon allay.
Thus, with succeeding turns, God tempereth all,
That man may hope to rise, yet fear to fall.'

There are many sorts of troubles in this world, and so many people who are afflicted in different ways,
that we ought to be very glad when we can help anyone carry their cross.

And we could probably find even more people to help us, if we knew were to look. Apparently tho' St. Teresa and St. Therese had the same problem.

To pray is to raise the mind to God and converse with Him concerning our interests with a reverent familiarity, and a confidence greater than has the most petted child with it's mother, and to talk with Him of all things both high and low, of the things of heaven and the things of earth;
it is to open ones heart to Him and pour it out unreservedly to Him; it is to tell Him of our labors, our sins, our desires, and all that is in our soul,
and to find our rest with Him as we would with a friend. It is what the Holy Scripture Calls "pouring forth ones heart as water before Him."
St. Francis de Sales
