we are as we pray...

John Emery Abbot and Ralph Waldo Emerson could be said to represent the theological extremes of "Boston Unitarianism."  Yet both knew that we are as we pray... Emerson's Poem, "Prayer"

"When success exalts thy lot
God for thy virtue lays a plot.
And all thy life is for thy own,
Then for mankind's instruction shown;
And though thy knees were never bent,
To Heaven thy hourly prayers are sent,
And whether formed for good or ill
Are registered and answered still."
