[Manna - June 10]
Lord, teach us to pray. Luke 11:1
IN brief, our prayers, to be acceptable to God, must express confident faith, loving esteem and reverence, full sympathy with the divine plan and submission to the divine will, childlike dependence upon God, acknowledgment of sins and shortcomings and desire for forgiveness, with humble craving for the divine guidance and protection. These may not always all be expressed in words, but such must at least be the attitude of the soul. Z.'95-213 R1865:1
"Prayer is the soul's sincere desire, uttered or unexpressed."
