“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!
