Brother Lawrence was an ordinary Christian man who loved and served God in France in the 17th century. He described himself as a clumsy oaf who broke everything. He worked in the kitchen of a church monastery and as he grew older repaired sandals. At first he was overwhelmed and frustrated with all the rules for prayer that he was encouraged to follow.
