Prayer – Mahatma Gandhi

Prayer has saved my life…. I had my share of the bitterest public and private experiences. They threw me into temporary despair. If I was able to get rid of that despair it was because of prayer. It has not been a part of my life as truth has bee. It came out of sheer necessity as I found my self in a plight where I could not be possibly be happy without it. As time went on my faith in God increased and more irresistible became the yearning for prayer. Life seemed to be dull and vacant without it…..In spite of despair staring me in the face on the political horizon, I have never lost my peace…. That peace comes from prayer…. I am indifferent as to the form. Everyone is a law unto himself in that respect…. Let everyone try and find that as a result of daily prayer he adds something new to his life.”
