To many people prayer seems a childish exercise undertaken by those whose powers are weak, and who look pitifully for some magical help outside themselves. To those with greater understanding, prayer is the way of reaching out beyond ourselves to the power of God, a power that does not necessarily alter outer circumstances to suit us, but rather one that strenthens us to tread the path towards fulfilment with courage and faith.


In this booklet we consider the philosophy of prayer, and some of the ways in which a group of people have found meaning in prayer.
