Merton’s Voice:

By “prayer of the heart” we seek God himself present in the depths of our being and meet him there by invoking the name of Jesus in faith, wonder and love.

Merton, Thomas. Contemplative Prayer. New York: Image Books, 1996,  p. 30-31


I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds. (NRSV Ps 9:1)
