Pray for One Another

Resurrection fern - Polypodium polypodioides

Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another, so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.      
James 5:16  NASB

Prayer is the world in tune,
A spirit voice, And vocal joys,
Whose echo is heaven's bliss.

Henry Vaughan: The Morning Watch

In prayer it is better to have a heart without words than words without heart.  
.......  John Bunyan 

Souls without prayer are like people whose bodies or limbs are paralyzed: They possess feet and hands but they cannot control them.
Teresa of Avila

My four-year-old daughter and I would always pray before she went to sleep. One night she volunteered to pray. She prayed and prayed and prayed—her voice getting softer and softer and softer, until only her lips were moving. Then she said "Amen."
"Honey," I said, "I didn't hear a word you said."
She answered, "Mama, I wasn't talking to you."
