Prayer- conferring on the dignity of the Real

From Worship by Evelyn Underhill, 1937

Each separate life of worship, whatever its outward expression, in so far as it  is truly cleansed of egoism and bent upon God, is part of this one eternal Eucharistic action of the Logos incarnate in the world: and this fact strips the Christian life of prayer of all petty subjectivism, all tendency to mere religious self-culture, and confers upon it the dignity of the Real.
