Gray Hair Wisdom / Prayers

The Golden Chain of Prayer

…More things are wrought by prayer
Than this world dreams of.
Wherefore let thy voice
Rise like a fountain, flowing night and day:
For what are men better than sheep or goats,
That nourish a blind life within the brain,
If, knowing God, they lift not hands of prayer,
Both for themselves and those who call them friend?
For so the whole round world is every way
Bound by gold chains about the feet of God.

Alfred Tennyson – Morte D’Arthur
