Prayer changes things

Prayer is not to tell God what He knows not. It is to verbalise our feelings to a Father as a child. Simple prayers are sublime. A father knows the child's needs; but he is delighted when the child asks him. That enlivens the relationship. The mother knows when to feed her baby, but her maternal instincts are stimulated when it cries for milk.

Prayer is the soul's sincere desire, uttered or unexpressed,

The  of a hidden fire that trembles in the breast.

Prayer is the simplest form of speech that infant lips can try;
Prayer the sublimest strains that reach the Majesty on High!                                       (James Montgomery, 1771-1854)

Keep praying, interceding and working.
