God's Reluctance - Julian of Norwich "Pray inwardly, even if you do not enjoy it. It does good, though you feel nothing. Yes, even though you think you are doing nothing." "Prayer is not overcoming God's reluctance. It is laying hold of His willingness.
When we, by the working of mercy and grace, be made meek and mild, we are fully safe; suddenly is the soul oned to God when it is truly peaced in itself: for in Him is found no wrath. - Julian of Norwich
