The Title

Prayer gives consistency to life, to action, to human relations, to the fact of human existence, both small and great. Prayer holds together the shattered fragments of the creation. It makes history possible. Therefore it is victory over nothingness... Such is the ultimate meaning of the combat of prayer, in which we discover that obedience in the face of every natural inclination and hope in the face of every probability take on a value far surpassing our personal concerns. At every moment the eschatological act of prayer is a combat against death and nothingness, so that we may pick up once again the thread of life.

- Jacques Ellul, Prayer and Modern Man
