A paragraph regarding the power of prayer that begins, "Prayer is the answer to every problem in life," is not from Ellen G. White, but appears to originate from a devotional reading found in The Daily Word, June 18, 1952. With slight variation, the quotation also appeared anonymously in the January 29, 1953, and October 7, 1965, issues of the Review and Herald. The statement, as usually circulated, carries the incorrect reference of Review and Herald, October 7, 1865. For a statement on prayer from Ellen G. White, see Steps to Christ, p. 100: "Keep your wants, your joys, your sorrows, your cares, and your fears before God. . . . There is no chapter in our experience too dark for Him to read; there is no perplexity too difficult for Him to unravel. No calamity can befall the least of His children, no anxiety harass the soul, no joy cheer, no sincere prayer escape the lips, of which our heavenly Father is unobservant, or in which He takes no immediate interest."
