To Have Intimacy with God You Need to Discipline Yourself Like an Athlete — A Quote by Henri Nouwen in “The Only Necessary Thing”

“It is clear that we are usually surrounded by so much inner and outer noise that it is hard to truly hear our God when God is speaking to us… A spiritual life requires discipline because we need to learn to listen to God… That is true prayer: being all ear for God. The core of all prayer is indeed listening, obediently standing in the presence of God.”

— Henri J. M. Nouwen, “The Only Necessary Thing”, p 82 (originally from “Making All Things New”)
