Treatise on Prayer by Tertullian, priest

From the Liturgy of the Hours comes this treatise on prayer -

"Prayer cleanses from sin, drives away temptations, stamps out persecutions, comforts the fainthearted, gives new strength to the courageous, brings travelers safely home, calms the waves, confounds robbers, feeds the poor, overrules the rich, lifts up the fallen, supports those who are falling, sustains those who stand firm.

...Even the Lord himself prayed."

Pray, especially during this season of Lent. God bless!!
