What should we ask from humans?

Anything that can be done by humans, we should not ask it from God. We should humble ourselves to these humans and we should ask for their help.

Knife against the enemy

Simplicity in our lives and the practice of the Jesus prayer, is a knife against the enemy.

Temptation is stronger

Fight against temptations with patience and prayer. If you try to fight temptation without these two, temptation will be stronger.
