Prayer as education

dostoevsky

“Young man, be not forgetful of prayer. Every time you pray, if your prayer is sincere, there will be new feeling and new meaning in it, which will give you fresh courage, and you will understand that prayer is an education.”

Fyodor Dostoevsky, The Brothers Karamazov, Book VI, Chapter 3 – Conversations and Exhortations of Father Zosima

  1. “It is not as a child that I believe and confess Jesus Christ. My hosanna is born of a furnace of doubt”

    (Fyodor Dostoevsky)

    Following Dostoevsky’s confession model I say:

    It is not as a child that I believe and confess Jesus Christ. I confess Christ as a grown up who as a child was denied the right to know the TRUTH. When I thought that my life ended He patiently revealed Himself and showed me the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE.
