Prayer the Churches banquet, Angels age,

Gods breath in man returning to his birth,

The soul in paraphrase, heart in pilgramage,

The Christian plummet sounding heav'n and earth;

Engine against th'Almightie, sinners towre,

Reversed thunder, Christ-side-piercing spear,

The six-daies world-transposing in an houre,

A kinde of tune, which all things heare and fear;

Softnesse, and peace, and joy, and love, and blisse,

Exalted Manna, gladnesse of the best,

Heaven in ordinarie, man well drest,

The milkie way, the bird of Paradise,

Church-bels beyond the starres heard, the souls bloud,

The land of spices; something understood.

.: :.

The prayer by George Herbert uses powerful sequential imagery, its first impression is to deliver a hand full of conciets however when looking closer it becomes a double sequence , the prayer raised to heaven but then heaven is brought to earth as heaven gives man grace to pray and in turn hear his prayers. The two ideas are intetwined .
Sinners towre is not only a refuge from the world ( a heaven on earth) but is meant to represent bable like structure threatening heaven. ( manna down from heaven 1st place before exhaulted by man - prayer) - this idea of duality is forced with " heaven is ordinarie man well drest"
