In the Hour of Prayer

“In the hour of prayer, when our mind wanders to thoughts of bad things–or if these thoughts come without our wanting them–we shouldn’t wage an offensive war against the enemy, because even if all the lawyers in the world joined together, they wouldn’t make any headway with a little demon. Only through ignoring them can one chase these thoughts away. The same is true for blasphemous thoughts.” -Elder Paisios
