Wisdom enjoins:
As breath is to life,
Prayer is to grace.
Pouring out the soul
to the Father of Lights
in unutterable spasms.
As a freewill offering:
Solemnly; Eternally devoted to Him,
Binding one to another.

Uniting as one,
A hidden Fire
Trembles in the breast.
The burden of a sigh,
The falling of a tear,
When none but God is near.
He delights in infant lips
Entering Heaven on supplication,
Accessing Majesty on High.

Angels in their songs rejoice;
We pray ……. I pray;
Saints unite in prayer.
A source; and an end,
In word, deed, and mind;
We supplicate ……. we receive.
Love to pray ……. pray to love;
We beseech thee Lord,
Teach us to pray.
