“Prayer is leading every sorrow to the source of all healing; it is letting the warmth of Jesus’ love melt the cold anger of resentment; it is opening a space where joy replaces sadness, mercy supplants bitterness, love displaces fear, gentleness and care overcome hatred and indifference. But most of all, prayer is the way to become and remain a part of Jesus’ mission to draw all people to the intimacy of God’s love.” -- Henri Nouwen in Prayer Embraces the World
