Prayer nourishes the soul.
December 15, 1989
The souls of all for whom you pray do indeed benefit by those prayers in a real, tangible, powerful, direct way. They benefit by your prayers as you benefit by your nourishment, for prayer is the food of the spirit. It is the nourishment of the soul. It is the power that enables the soul to increase its sensitivity and awareness and response to the brilliance and warmth of God's light.
