"La Prière" [1] (1930, English: The Prayer) is a black and white photograph by French Surrealist Man Ray.

It shows the buttocks of a kneeling woman, seen from behind, her buttocks resting on her feet. Around her legs she holds her buttocks with her hands shielding her sex. Her hands are folded in the manner of a prayer, hence the title.
