We’ve done many collaborations with Outside Da Box. Several months ago, while we were working on other projects, they mentioned in passing that they were looking to do a video on prayer in the summer. I happen to run into some words that mother Teresa said on prayer and I couldn’t keep myself from digging in deeper. I started digging deeper into what Mother Teresa had to say about prayer until I found a scene from an old documentary on Mother Teresa where she shared the beautiful words found in this video.
In the course of making this video I’ve probably listened 50 times, to her state how to listen and start on our path to holiness. Yet each time something new clicks. This isn’t just a random series of Christian catch phrases, this is a holy individual that has truly shared how each step leads to the next. If we truly want peace in this world, this is how we do it. If we want to make it to heaven, this is how we do it. If we to know how to love this is where we start. I pray you find these words of solace as inspiring as I have found them.

God speaks in the silence of the heart and we listen, and then we speak to God from the fullness of our heart. First we listen, God speaks, and then we speak and God listens and that connection is, is prayer, is oneness with God.
The fruit of prayer, is deepening of faith and the fruit of faith is love and the fruit of love is service. And the fruit of service is peace that’s why we need to pray to have a clean heart and if you have a clean heart we can see God.
And when we see God, naturally we begin to love one another that means, we see, and we look, and then we give our hands to serve and our hearts to love and that’s the beginning of holiness.
