Prayer is the time exposure of the soul to the highest that we know and
he who practices it will learn its central, primary and transforming importance.
Prayer is the fulfillment of man's highest capacity to look not down alone
nor out, but up, and to adore. Prayer is the road to the crowning experience
of human life,
being carried out of ourselves by something greater than ourselves to which we give ourselves. Prayer is taking in earnest the central affirmation of religion that there
is a responsive Spirit at the heart of reality in communion with whom is our power and peace. True prayer is never an endeavor to change the divine
purpose but is always an endeavor to release it through the one who prays into the world.

We know that our prayers are imperfect. Of course they are.
We are imperfect human beings. A thousand experiences have convinced
me beyond room of doubt that prayer multiplies the strength of the
individual and brings within the scope of his capabilities almost any
