The Beautiful Garden of Prayer

There’s a garden where Jesus is waiting, And He bids you to come meet Him there, Just to walk and to talk with my Savior, In the beautiful garden of prayer. 

(Hymn 411)

Moreover, I told myself that this play could bring forth invaluable knowledge for spiritual growth and personal development.
