Barth on Prayer

I confess to not having read much Barth (yet) and after the Edinburgh Dogmatics conference, I'm resolved to do something about it! OK, I might disagree with Barth's formulation of Imago Dei theology, but you have to say this is quite possibly the greatest short quote on prayer from a Swiss Theologian!

To clasp the hands in prayer is the beginning of an uprising against the disorder of the world.
