St. Vincent de Paul Society

Sometimes I imagine that the reason of God’s delay in answering our
prayers is that He wants to make us ready to accept what He desires to
give us. Often we ask God for favors with our heads but not with our hearts. At other times we ask God for favors with our hearts but not our heads. He desires us to ask with both our hearts and our heads. Prayer must always be an expression of the love that is in us for God, for His world, for His Church and for those who have so much less than we have, namely, His poor. (McCullen, Deep Down Things)
