Prayer: a gift to us all

"In contrast to the Old Testament, the religious literature of ancient Mesopotamia rarely presents free, personal prayer."

Walter Beyerlin, editor, Near Eastern Religious Texts relating to the Old Testament, page 112.

"Trust in him at all times, O people;
pour out your heart before him;
God is a refuge for us." Psalm 62:8
