Prayer

Concerning prayer, J. Oswald Sanders wrote: Prayer is an amazing paradox. It is a blending of simplicity and profundity. It can be an agony or an ecstasy. It can focus on a single objective, or it can roam the world. It is “the simplest form of speech that infant lips can try,” and yet at the same time is “The sublimest strains that reach the Majesty on high.” Small wonder, then, that even Paul, spiritual giant though he was, had to confess: “We do not know what we ought to pray for.”
