The Spiritual Offering of Prayer

Bird soaring upwardPrayer is the offering in spirit that has done away with the sacrifices of old.... We pray in spirit, and so offer in spirit the sacrifice of prayer.... All the angels pray. Every creature prays. Cattle and wild beasts pray and bend the knee. As they come from their barns and caves they look out to heaven and call out, lifting up their spirit in their own fashion.
[From the treatise On Prayer by Tertullian]
