Wisdom from a Desert Father

“Abba Zeno said, ‘If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks.’ ”

From the book The Sayings of the Desert Fathers - The Alphabetical Collection, translated by Benedicta Ward, SLG.
