St Nilus of Sinai: Praying

“St. Paul teaches us to continue “instant in prayer” [Romans 12:12], grounding ourselves in it by long perseverance [Collossians 4:2, Ephesians 6:18]. He also commands us to “pray everywhere” [1 Timothy 2:8] so that no idle one can excuse himself because he lives far from the house of prayer. Any place is suitable for prayer. God accepts those who call to Him with a pure heart and righteous deeds, and seeing their disposition, listens to their supplication, even if the place whence they call to Him has nothing special to distinguish it”- St Nilus of Sinai
