It is necessary to remove from the dialogue with God all presumption, all that we think we have learnt and possess. We must enter prayer as poor, not as possessed. Whenever we present ourselves before God, we present ourselves as absolutely poor; I believe that whenever we do not do this, our prayer suffers, it becomes heavier, it is laden with things that disturb it. It is necessary to enter before God truly in a state of poverty, of being stripped bare, of being unpretentious:

Lord, I am not able to pray, and if you allow me to stand before you in a state of barrenness, of waiting, well I will bless this waiting, because you are too great for me to understand you. You are the Immense, the Infinite, the Eternal: how can I speak to you? (Carlo Maria Martini)
