Prayer is...

Prayer is really an attitude of our hearts toward God.  As such it finds expression, at times with words and at times without words, precisely as when two people love each other.  As conscious personalities we must and should give expression to our attitudes in words one to another.  It is this facility that lifts the fellowship of human beings to such a high plane and makes it so rich...

In the soul's fellowship with God in prayer, too, there are things which can and should be formulated in words... But there are also things for which we can find no words .  Likely it is this to which the apostle makes reference when he speaks in Romans 8:26 of the "groanings which cannot be uttered."
