Every prayer acceptable to God is a miracle wrought by Him and returning to Him. It may be illustrated by the letter V. Among these innumerable miracles the Lord's Prayer, in its content, sequence, and beauty, is unsurpassed. It is the summary of every God-pleasing prayer ever recorded in heaven or on earth. Every other prayer prompted by the Spirit is the Lord's Prayer in part, cast into a different form. Any opinion to the contrary is an evidence that the content of the Lord's Prayer has not been understood, nor its scope measured, nor its depth sounded.
