Icons and images worth looking and reflecting on.
"He who really prays is a theologian, and he who is a theologian really prays." - Evagrius of Pontus
"What is pure prayer? Prayer which is brief in words but abundant in actions. For if your actions do not exceed your petitions, then your prayers are mere words." - The Desert Fathers
"Prayer does not consist merely in standing and bowing your body or in reading written prayers... it is possible to pray at all times, in all places, with the mind and spirit. You can lift up your mind and heart to God while walking, sitting, working, in a crowd and in solitude. His door is always open, unlike man's. We can always say to Him in our hearts: Lord, Lord, have mercy." Saint Tikhon of Zadonsk
