Teach Me To Pray

From French Roman Catholic priest, Jean-Nicolas Grou (1731-1803) ...

O my Savior, I say to Thee, again with more insistence than ever: Teach me to pray; implant in me all the dispositions needful for prayer of the Holy Spirit.

Make me humble, simple and locile; may I do all that is in my power to become so.

Of what is my prayer if the Holy Spirit does not pray with me? Come Holy Spirit, come to dwell and work within me! Take possession of my understanding and my will; govern my actions not only at the moment of prayer but every moment. I cannot glorify God nor sanctify myself save by Thee.
