Anne (The Prayer) | Gera! by Kyoko Maruoka
Anne, a young orphan, has just arrived in her new home, a farmstead. Her tutor enjoins her to say her evening prayers. But Anne does not know how to pray. Why kneel and what should she say?
"If I really wanted to pray I'll tell you what I'd do. I'd go out into a great big field all alone or into the deep,deep,woods, and I'd look up into the sky-up-up-up-into that lovely blue sky that looks as if there was no end to its blueness.
And then I'd just FEEL a prayer. "
