of guidance Dark Water: A Siren Novel in understanding what prayer entails Generally speaking most prayers either a petition or supplication simply because we want something from the release of pain to winning the lottery often less freuently a vote of thanks as Muse in counting our blessings Within the established religions prayers generally performed by rote and as the author points out Prayer
