Therefore when we are in contact with Him, all the desires of our hearts are really prayers, all our thoughts are creative. No wonder our Lord urged so solemnly that we should abide in Him, have our minds stayed upon Him. We really possess our mental faculties simply and solely that we may use them under the direction and control of the Holy Spirit. It is this which differentiates human beings from animals, namely this faculty of communicating with God through the contact of our minds with His.
