Prayer nourishes the soul ( Elder Paisios )

Prayer, combined with a curtailment of sleep, nourishes the soul — in addition to granting it spiritual alertness — and safeguards it, like a child in its mother’s embrace. The infant who runs with yearning to the embrace of its mother to breast-feed and is filled with her sweet love and affection is smarter than us adults when we avoid union with God through prayer, which we often consider drudgery.
