St. Teresa of Avila on our demeanor when we pray

“Is there anyone, however foolish, who when he is about to ask for
something from an important person doesn’t think over how he should go about
asking?”
(Way of Perfection, Ch. 30, para. 1).

Yet we don’t come to prayer with the recollection that we address the Ruler of the Universe.
