Threads of Grace

Prayer casts threads of grace across chasms of disconnection, loneliness, fear and pain. Prayer weaves people back into community and rebinds them to the source of life.

From Five Practices of Fruitful Living by Robert Schnase

He calls prayer "threads of grace." I like that image. I like that prayer ties us to God and that it also ties us to each other.

Do we think of prayer that way? Do we remember that it ties us to each other as well as to God? And do we think of prayer as grace?
