Prayer

“To pray is to unite ourselves with Jesus and lift up the whole world through him to God in a cry for forgiveness, reconciliation, healing and mercy.  To pray, therefore, is to connect whatever human struggle or pain we encounter – whether starvation, torture, displacement or peoples, or any form of physical and mental anguish – with the gentle and humble heart of Jesus. …” – Henri Nouwen, “The Only Necessary Thing” pg. 36
