An invincible weapon against the enemy

The enemy knows that prayer is our invincible weapon against him, and so he tries to keep us from praying. He fills us with a desire for secular learning, and encourages us to spend our time on studies that we have already renounced. Let us resist his suggestions; otherwise, if we neglect our own fields and go wandering elsewhere, we shall harvest thorns and thistles instead of figs and grapes. "For the wisdom of this world is folly in God's sight" (I Corinthians 3:19).
St. John of Karpathos

The devil can't read our minds, if we pray to God in our heads he'll never know. :)
And we can also pray in our hearts as the Father taught.
