PRAYERS SHOULD BE FROM THE HEART.
After hearing Kenmore recite the prayers, once Hoshang Bharucha asked Kenmore, "Are you praying or fighting with God?"
The next day when he had to repeat the prayers, Kenmore spoke them almost in a whisper. Baba stopped him halfway through and asked why he was suddenly adopting a new method of praying. Kenmore replied, "I do not want to disturb the auditory apparatus of our new visitors."
Baba looked sternly at Hoshang and Cowas, who at that moment felt it would be better if the earth gave way beneath their feet and swallowed them up! Baba instructed Kenmore to repeat the prayer as usual. When he finished, Baba remarked, "Prayers should be from the heart. It does not matter whether they are said loudly or softly. They should be natural. For Harry it is natural to say them loudly. If he had to say them softly, it would not be natural for him."
