Our aim in the life of prayer is not to gain feelings or “sensible” experiences of any particular kind, but simply and solely to conform our will to God’s. “I seek not what is yours but you,” says St Paul to the Corinthians (2 Cor 12:14); and we say the same to God. We seek not the gifts but the Giver.
