"'When you are praying, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do; for
they think that they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be
like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.  "Pray
then in this way: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name.  Your kingdom
come. Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our
daily bread.  And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our
debtors.  And do not bring us to the time of trial, but rescue us from the
evil one.  For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father
will also forgive you; but if you do not forgive others, neither will your
Father forgive your trespasses." ~Matthew 6:7-15

Prayer is of many kinds, but of whatever kind, prayer is the linking up of
the soul and mind to God.  So, if prayer is only a glance of faith, a look
or a word of love, or just a feeling of confidence in the goodness and
purpose in the universe, still the result of that prayer is added strength
to meet all temptations and to overcome them. Even if no supplication is
expressed, all the supply of strength that is necessary is secured, because
the soul, being linked and united to God, receives from God all spiritual
help needed.  The soul, when in its human body, still needs the things
belonging to its heavenly habitation.

I pray that I may be taught how to pray.  I pray that I may be linked
through prayer to the mind and will of God.
