ive come to notice that the remark "i will pray for you" is simply a feeble substitute for actual help. it makes you satisfied, thinking that you have helped when really, you have not done a thing. ... imagine someone you love being sick. you have the option of sending the person to the doctor OR you can pray for him/her. so you pray day and night, waiting for a miracle to happen. its hardly the way to do things, my dears. the point i am making, is that praying, itself being so convenient, is often abused by people, knowingly or otherwise. its an easy way out! why PRAY when you can actually go out there and offer REAL help?
This reminds me of Robert Green Ingersoll's comment "The hands that help are better far Than lips that pray." Most people even today fail to see how important and true that is, but Victoria definitely gets it.
Prayer: a feeble substitute for real help and action.
