  • Prayer is not escape from reality and from action; it is the source of strength and insight for action. It is the only preparation for sound action.

  • There is danger that prayers such as 'Grant us brotherhood' may become substitutes for positive action toward creation of brotherhood in the world. It is a trick of the human spirit to turn to abstract worship of something which man will not pay the price to achieve — so vicariously he enjoys the fruits of it in an idealistic worship of something of which the realities of the world make a mockery.
