Paul S. Fiddes on Trinitarian Prayer

"In praying to the Father we find that our words are fitting into a movement of relationship that is already there before us, like that of a conversation between a Son and a Father; so, as St. Paul says, we offer our 'yes' to God through the Amen which which Christ speaks as the faithful son to the Father. In giving ourselves away to others, we find ourselves leaning upon a movement of self-giving and mission that is far deeper than our own."
