It’s important to remember that your prayers always reflect you state of life,
In that respect, prayer is a solemn means to raise your life condition,
And to get exactly the results that you’re praying for, it is crucial to make determined, single-minded efforts toward that goal,
That is the true path of manifesting faith in daily life,
Those of you who proceed along this path day after day, year after year,
Will without fail develop — just like saplings into mighty trees,
Becoming people of outstanding strength and character.
