It is night while this life is lived. And when is this night illuminated? It is lighted when Christ descends to the night. He took the flesh of this generation and our night received the light.
(En. in ps. 138,14)
Your prayer is a conversation with God. When you read, it is God who is speaking, when you pray, it is with God that you are speaking.
Lord, those who are bowed down with burdens you lift up, and they do not fall because you are their support.
