Quotation Number 9 (Not to be confused with Love Potion Number 9) from my Book of Quotes

On intercessory prayer

"He prayed as he breathed, forming no words and making no specific requests, only holding in his heart, like broken birds in cupped hands, all those people who were in stress or grief."

from A Morbid Taste for Bones by Ellis Peters---as quoted by Madeleine L'Engle in Two Part Invention
