orthodoxgladness:

The weak one prays not to be slandered, but the courageous one prays that God will help him not to slander neither verbally nor mentally. – St.Ambrose of Optina

Who is the focus of my prayer? Is it me? If it is, then I will receive nothing from God. Is it you? Then great blessings will flow. He must increase and I must decrease.
