Worship does not begin and end with the beginning and ending of prayer,
but is a continuous experience of prayerful mindfulness.

Martinus, P. M.

The meaning of faith “is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. For by it the men of old received divine approval. By faith we understand that the world was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was made out of things which do not appear” (Heb 11:1-3).


Praying is a act of worship. Prayers may be formal or informal, but both types are objective. Formal prayers are spoken openly and with clear objective purpose in a communal sense. Informal prayers are private thanksgiving and petitions that are communicated on a purely subjective basis. Prayer is mode of communication.
