The Book of Her Life, Ch. 9, #7
Though I continued to associate with the world, I had the courage to practice prayer. I say courage, for I do not know what would require greater courage among all the things there are in the world than to betray the king and know that He knows it and yet never leave His presence.
Though we are always in the presence of God, it seems to me the manner is different for those who practice prayer, for they are aware that He is looking at them. With others, it can happen that several days pass without their recalling that God sees them.
