"Prayer is essentially a personal encounter, an encounter between a person and God. But for it to be a genuine encounter, the two persons must be truly themselves. Too often, truth is missing from our prayer. Instead of turning to the living and true God, we address ourselves to something we imagine to be God. Thérèse, instead, sought the real face of God in truth and this is why her relationship with him was so genuine." From Holy Daring.
