What we call the "Lord's Prayer" is the prayer Jesus taught to his disciples.
If we can't pray it sincerely ourselves, we can ask Jesus to pray the prayer in us.
Thus, mysticism is the reality of grace accompanying the whole life of the believer, transforming him or her from dawn into midday and from an individual burning coal into an all-consuming fire.The Sun at Midnight (Cistercian Publications)
Save me, O God,
for the waters have come up to my neck.I sink in deep mire,
where there is no foothold;
I have come into deep waters,
and the flood sweeps over me.I am weary with my crying;
my throat is parched.
My eyes grow dim
with waiting for my God.. . . . .But as for me, my prayer is to you, O Lord.
At an acceptable time, O God,
in the abundance of your steadfast love, answer me.
(Psalm 69:1-3, 13)
