Whoever would pray ought to take to heart these words:  "Apart from me you can do nothing" (John 15:5).  Nothing.  Nothing at all.  We pray, we beg, because we have nothing and consequently can do nothing, or, to say it all in a single word, because we are nothing.  So we must pray, knowing that we are heard only in the name of Jesus, but also that in his name we can obtain all.  

~Meditations for Lent by Bishop Jacques-Benigne Bossuet

Dear Lord, how happy I am to be nothing so that You may be my ALL!  Amen.
