ABSTRACT
The author of this article is a skeptical woman who hesitated to put her hands together for prayer but opened her heart and found the words she needed. At times she felt silly and self-conscious, as though she were asking to win some emotional lottery. She knew that in order to feel better, she'd have to do some work, too. What human beings pray for, if it's honestly felt, speaks of who they actually are.
