“The Practice of the Presence of God”

“When we are faithful to keep ourselves in His holy Presence, and set Him always before us, this not only hinders our offending Him, and doing anything that may displease Him, at least wilfuly, but it also begets in us a holy freedom, and if I may so speak, a familiarity with GOD, wherewith we ask and that successfully, the graces we stand in of.  In fine, by often repeating these acts, they become habitual, and the presence of GOD is rendered as it were natural to us.”

-Brother Lawrence
