Sabbath Musings

"Vocal prayers, as we know, give no information to God: but they do give us that temper of mind in which we can approach Him… If anyone objects that this is tantamount to saying that vocal prayer is a self-suggestion, I reply that a very great deal of it is self-suggestion; and, moreover, that we ought thus to suggest to our reluctant and wandering minds such devotional ideas… It has always been used by religious persons; and we ought not to be afraid of doing that which has always been done with profit, merely because psychology has given it a new and ugly name."
— Evelyn Underhill
