Power of Prayer

"Why does the Scripture invite us so often to pray, and promise that we shall be heard, were it not that in all our evils and infirmities, we should betake ourselves to our heavenly physician? Why does David call Him the God of his strength, but because he had made him strong, as he will you also. But He wills that you pray to Him, and study his word, which is the food of the soul; for if the body loses its strength when deprived of food, how must that soul languish which is not nourished and sustained by the word of God?"

~ An excerpt from a letter from Olympia Morata to Madonna Cherubina Orsini
