It is not only prayer that gives God glory, but work. Smiting on an anvil, sawing on a beam, whitewashing a wall, driving horses, sweeping, scouring, everything gives God some glory if being in His grace you do it as your duty...To lift up the hands in prayer gives God glory, but a man with a dung fork in his hand, a woman with a slop pail, give him glory too. He is so great that all things give Him glory if you mean they should. By: Gerald Manley Hopkins Source: A Hopkins Reader, Oxford, 1953
