THE PURPOSE OF PRAYER

We have taught our people to use prayer too much as a means of comfort -- not in the original and heroic sense of uplifting, inspiring, strengthening, but in the more modern and baser sense of soothing sorrow, dulling pain, and drying tears -- the comfort of the cushion, not the comfort of the Cross. 

-- G. A. Studdert Kennedy (1883-1929)
