Ministers should not pray so loud, and long, as to exhaust the strength. It is not necessary to weary the throat and lungs in prayer. God’s ear is ever open to hear the heart-felt petitions of his humble servants, and he does not require them to wear out the organs of speech in addressing him.

Peter Parker is probably the most relatable superhero – maybe ever – because he goes through something that basically everyone has to go through.
