“O MY soul, thou hast slumbered long enough in sin: awake, and arise from sleep! Flee to repentance and grieve in earnest, that the Just One may have regard to thy tears.” (Page xv)

“Lord and Master of my life, keep from me a spirit of inactivity and idleness! Grant that my days which are so short, may not be spent in worldly vanity and idleness; grant that the talents intrusted to me may not be buried in the earth of forgetfulness and of sloth; grant that through dislike of labour or trouble, I may not reckon a burden what Thou givest me to do, and thus deface Thine own image in me! But give me to be bold in every good and blessed work; give me to labour without weariness in the cultivation of my nature for eternity; and grant that whatever I do, be done to Thy glory, O Lord, and not for my own pleasure. Amen.” (Pages 31–32)

“Every faculty of the soul—when brought into activity is improved and strengthened; but when left inactive, grows weaker, and wastes away.” (Page 23)

“We are taught by Holy Scripture that man walks as it were always between two worlds; the one on high, of light; the other of below, dark and of the devil. Those two worlds influence him continually, and contend with each other for the mastery over him;1 the angelic world so acts on that man, that it protects, supports, strengthens him in the path of repentance and of virtue, inspiring him with good thoughts and feelings, and imparting to him spiritual strength and power. The wicked world, on the other hand, acts on a man in this way, that it strives to waylay him from the path of righteousness, and to hold him captive by passions and vice; breathing for that purpose, into his heart every thing that is impure and opposed to God.” (Pages 11–12)

    I really enjoyed reading this book. It is so encouraging and spiritually uplifting. The commentary on the prayer of S. Ephraem by S. C. Malan is rich and deep with meaning. I was spiritually encouraged so much by reading this book. Thank you God for putting this book in my hands.
