FAITH AND PRAYER…
“Is there anything more important than prayer?” a disciple asked his teacher.
The teacher told the disciple to go to a nearby tree and cut off a branch. The disciple obeyed.
“Is the tree still alive?” asked the teacher.
“As alive as it was before.”
“Then go over there and slice through its roots.”
“If I do that, the tree will die.”
“Prayers are the branches of a tree whose roots are called Faith,” said the teacher.
– Paulo Coelho
It therefore means “Prayer cannot exist without Faith”. It is Faith that gives Prayer its Power. For without Faith, we cannot please God.
Have a beautiful day!
