Prayer is another way of telling God that we have all confidence in Him but no confidence in our own native powers.
Strong men (self-strong) neglect prayer, or sometimes slight or ignore it, and therefore show their self esteem and their near-independence of divine help. But weak men cry to God, because God’s strength is guaranteed to be made perfect in their weakness.
The light in the prayer tower should never be put out!
