Evagrius, On Prayer 59-60

59

If you wish to carry out your prayer, you need God, who “gives prayer to the one praying.” So persist in calling out to him, saying “hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come.” His “name” is the Holy Spirit and his kingdom is the only begotten Son. After all, this is what he taught when he said the Father was worshipped “in Spirit and in Truth.”

60

The one who prays “in spirit and in truth” no longer extols the creator for created things, but sings his praise for his very self.
