Prayer is not asking. It is a longing of the soul.
~ Mohandas “Mahatma” Gandhi
Prayers of praise and adoration are found in almost every religious tradition. They are said, chanted, or sung to extol the love, compassion, greatness, and/or power of God.
You are father of the world, of animate and inanimate things;
its venerable teacher, most worthy of worship, without equal.
Where in all three worlds is another to match your extraordinary power?
I bow to you, I prostrate my body,
I beg you to be gracious worshipful Lord;
as a father to a son, a friend to a friend,
a lover to a beloved,
O Lord, be merciful and tolerant.
(Bhagavad Gita 11:43-44)
