“… prayer must overflow the boundaries of selfhood to include the life, the needs of the race; accepting as a corollary of its filial relation with God a brotherly relation with all other souls however diverse, and at every point replacing ‘mine’ with ‘ours’. “
From my morning readings in “Abba” by Evelyn Underhill
If I claim God as my Father, I must accept all His children as my brothers. I must pray not for me, but for us.
