"As a physician, I have seen people, after all other therapy has failed, lifted out of disease and melancholy by the serene effort of prayer. It is the only power in the world that seems to overcome the so-called 'laws of nature;' the occasions on which prayer has dramatically done this have been termed 'miracles.' But a constant, quieter miracle takes place hourly in the hearts of men and women who have discovered that prayer supplies them with a steady flow of sustaining power in their daily lives."
- Alexis Carrel (1873-1944)
This is comforting when you don't get what you asked for, but you get what you needed. That is still a kind of miracle, a kind of grace, and it is enough.
