Prayer Is Made of Attention

Prayer is made of attention. It is the direction towards God of all the attention that the soul is capable of. The quality of the attention makes for much of the quality of the prayer. It cannot be replaced by the heart’s warmth.

- Simone Weil, "Réflexion sur le bon usage des études scolaires en vue de l’Amour de Dieu (Reflections On The Good Usage Of School Studies In View Of The Love Of God" in Attente De Dieu (Waiting for God).
