The "Gestalt prayer" is a statement by psychotherapist Fritz Perls that is taken as a classic expression of Gestalt therapy. The key idea of the statement is the focus on living in response to one's own needs, without projecting onto or taking introjects from others. It also expresses the idea that it is by fulfilling their own needs that people can help others do the same and create space for genuine contact; that is, when they "find each other, it's beautiful."
