if we know that our lives are destined for ever greater fullness, creativity, and self giving love, we have a criterion against which we can see the obstacles which we place in our own ways on a journey towards those qualities. Prayer then is a question of seeing ourselves and others in the light of our deepest purpose, and allowing the obstacles to be warmed and transformed by the future that is coming towards us.
