"That is the beauty of the Psalms: in speaking to and for all, they speak to each one of us differently. Under the Spirit’s inspiration and guidance, the words match our needs of soul in every circumstance."
"Praying from the depths of heart clearly isn’t about straining the mind with thoughts, deep concentration, or even deep introspection. Allowing the grace of the Holy Spirit to well up within, to breathe as he wills, to intercede for us with groans beyond words, is to pray from the depths of the heart. Our humble openness to the truths he wishes to reveal, the sorrow he wishes to inspire, the joy he wishes to establish and increase, allows him to heal the soul from the ground up, so to speak."
