The best, finest, sweetest, most immediate fruit and result of supplication is this, that the person who offers it knows there is someone who listens to his voice, sends a remedy for his ailment, takes pity on him, and whose hand of power reaches everything. He is not alone in this great hostel of the world; there is an All-Generous Being who looks after him and makes it friendly.
Imagining himself in the presence of the One who can bring about all his needs and repulse all his innumerable enemies, he feels joy and relief; he casts off his load, which is as heavy as the world and exclaims:
“All praise be to God, the Lord and Sustainer of All the Worlds!”
From 24th Letter by Master Said Nursi
