Abbot Kodell's keys range from true prayer, like true love, is a decision not a feeling," to *prayer is not a matter of thinking but of loving; to *no one with a prayer life says that prayer doesn't work. - Supportive and practical, they remind us that we will learn to pray well only after we begin to pray.
