How many prayers are raised daily to God? Hansen created packets sealed in encaustic wax and containing written prayers. She additionally illustrated the vast number of humanity’s offered prayers by the red forms in the background. People around the world offer prayer and they are accepted, no matter how inept or humble. Humanity unites in prayer.

"I believe that attempting communication with God is an act that unifies people, and that every prayer, no matter how clumsy or simple, is acceptable to God."
