Let my prayer be counted as incense before you, and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice. Psalm 141:2

Prayer is not asking. It is a longing of the soul. It is a daily admission of one’s weakness. It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without a heart. Mahatma Gandhi
