More than Words…

“Prayer is something deeper than words.  It is present in the soul before it has been formulated in words.  And it abides in the soul after the last words of prayer have passed over our lips…Prayer is a definite attitude of our hearts toward God, an attitude which He in heaven immediately recognizes as prayer, as an appeal to His heart.  Whether it takes the form of words or not, does not mean anything to God, only to ourselves.”

– Ole Hallesby, Prayer, p18
