Prayer is the expression of a life...

"We are slow to learn that effective prayer involves a constant interaction between the quality of soul we bring to our prayers and the sincerity of our desire. To pray to be made wise is the merest superstition, unless we bring to our prayer the kind of soul that is capable of acquiring wisdom. We are responsible not only for our prayers, but for providing the background against which prayer can energise. It is not too much, indeed, to say that for every prayer we give to prayer itself-excepting, of course, the actual practice of prayer, which is vital at every stage- we should give ten to the life behind the prayer."
