What happens to prayers that appear to us to be unanswered?

Where do they go?

Are they scattered in the cosmic winds, never to be seen again?

Do they fall back down to earth, like so many dried leaves?

Or do they form an eternal bridge of human hope and longing, traversing time and space, bonded together in the service of all human aspiration?
