“Prayer is the means that God has given us to survive, Threough prayer we can sustain our human dignity and the freedom of our uniqueness but still love other people as well. Through prayer we can be freed from the suffocating influences of bad relationships, past and present.  The rich communication between us and God in prayer enables us to relate to other people as he relates to us. Prayer makes it possible to contribute postively to our relationships, making the world less of a jungle of wild animals, more a world of friendships.”

James Houston- The Transforming Friendship.
