Voice of the Day: Biersdorf on Prayer as an Act of Love.

By Administrator 02-27-2007

As an act of love, prayer is a courageous act. It is a risk we take. It is a life-and-death risk, believing in the promises of the gospel, that God's love is indeed operative in the world. In prayer we have the courage, perhaps even the presumption and the arrogance or the audacity to claim that God's love can be operative in the very specific situations of human need that we encounter.

- John E. Biersdorf
excerpt from Healing of Purpose.
