Cleansing Fire

What if prayer is a furnace?

    When we confess, every sin and every evil thing 
       is burnt away into ashes. 


          But every prayer in line with Life and Love
            —stemming from God’s Spirit—
                 is refined like gold and silver. 


                   What if that? 


                       And lest we forget, 
                         even ashes are used in making soap…
