Why “I aM A Prayer”?

I aM A PRAYER, “imaprayer”, is what we are striving to be (i.e. a pray-er, one who prays).

According to “The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition.” Copyright © 2000 by Houghton Mifflin Company. Published by the Houghton Mifflin Company: the primary definition of prayer is a reverent petition, the act of making a reverent petition to God, an act of communion with God, a specially worded form used to address God, a religious observance, a fervent request, the thing requested, or the slightest chance or hope.

Digging deeper into “The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition” there is a secondary definition: one who prays. We feel that this should be the primary definition.
