Matthew The Poor, Orthodox Prayer Life, pp.16-22

“Prayer has no purpose other than to glorify God…
we must therefore examine ourselves
and see
whether the ultimate aim of our prayer
is the revelation of God’s glory alone…

prayer is God’s perpetual call within us
drawing us
toward the fulfillment of the ultimate purpose
of our creation,
our union with God…

The eternal purpose of prayer
is man’s reacceptance
of the communion of God’s love,
once and forever.”
