To pray is to aspire to holy thought,
To hold to things by mortal eye unseen,
To hush the voice of sense and calmly wait
For that which prophets hear, the "still small voice."
To pray is to desire, above all else,
That certain knowledge of the living God
Which gives men their dominion o'er the earth,
And proves man's likeness to the Father-Mind.
To pray is not to dream, it is to live;
Not to repeat a multitude of words;
Nor to assume a posture, here or there,
But consciously to be a child of God.
Then whatsoever things ye may desire,
Believe that ye receive and ye shall have.
This is the teaching of the perfect Son —
Our Lord, whose every thought and word was prayer.
