    set in motion

    "But prayer involves more than the power of the Almighty; it is set in motion by human beings, who may be the weak in an otherwise immensely strong chain."

    I am wondering what is the real meaning of "set in motion" in the above text.

    Re: set in motion

    The human beings make it happen - it is their actions which create a movement.
