PRAYER: Prayer For Understanding by Athanasius

Prayer For Understanding by Athanasius

Anyone who wishes to understand the mind of the sacred writers must first cleanse his own life, and approach the saints by copying their deeds.  Thus united to them in the fellowship of life, he will both understand the things revealed to them by God and, thenceforth escaping the peril that threatens sinners in the judgment, will receive that which is laid up for the saints in the Kingdom of Heaven.

Of that reward it is written: “Eye hath not seen nor ear heard, neither hath entered into the heart of man the things that God hath prepared” for them that live a Godly life and love the God and Father in Christ Jesus our Lord, through whom and with whom be to the Father himself, with the Son himself, in the Holy Spirit, honor and might and glory to ages of ages of ages.

Amen.
