My daughter captured this move well: ‘I think about prayer as a kind of divine poetics. I can’t think of anything else that could possibly change the hearts and minds of people … This is why prayer is so necessary; it moves beyond the cerebral and into the actual human experience and our connection with God and the earth’.
