Chapter 0ne: The Revelation of Prayer ~ The Universal Call to Prayer
(2566) Man is in search of God. In the act of creation, God calls every being from nothingness to existence. ‘Crowned with glory and with honour’, man is, after the angels, capable of acknowledging ‘how majestic is the name of the Lord in all the earth’ (Psalm 8: 5). Even after losing through sin the likeness to God, man remains an image of his Creator and retains the desire for the one who calls him into existence. All religions bear witness to men’s essential search for God (cf: Acts 17: 27).
