Prayer

“Do not pray for the fulfillment of your wishes, for they may not accord with the will of God. But pray as you have been taught, saying: Thy will be done in me (cf. Luke 22:42). Always entreat Him in this way – that His will be done. For He desires what is good and profitable for you, whereas you do not always ask for this.” – Evagrius Ponticus.

Swami Sarvapriyananda speaks on Evagrius’s teachings on prayer.
