Signs of the Times

From a column in the Christian World London, England

Prayer is not only request made to God, but converse had with Him. It is the expression of desire to Him so as to supply it—of purpose so as to steady it—of hope so as to brighten it. It is the bringing of one's heart into the sunshine, so that, like a plant, its inward life may thrive for an outward development. It is the plea of one's better self against one's weaker self.... It is the expression and the exercise of love for all that is good and true. It is a wrestle with evil in the presence of supreme goodness. It is the ascent of the soul above time into the freedom of eternity.
