Praying - bringing mind and heart together

Bringing the hands together is one of the gestures of prayer, and it is a gesture full of meaning. The right and left hand coming together represent the union of mind and heart, of thought and feeling. The mind, thanks to its light, finds the best request to make to heaven, and the heart supports this request with its warmth. There are many, many paintings where artists have depicted people in prayer, even children and angels with their hands together! That doesn't mean that in order to pray you have to physically put your hands together, no, for it isn't the physical side that counts but the inner. You should bring mind and heart and, higher still, spirit and soul together, for it is that union that gives prayer its power.
