Prayer quotes
Prayer
In Him--"The Father"--I can trust, in spite of the horrible things I see happen, in spite of the fact that my own prayers are not answered. I believe that He makes all things work together for the good of the human race, and of me among the rest, as long as I obey His will. I believe He will answer my prayer, not according to the letter, but according to the spirit of it; that if I desire good, I shall find good, though not the good I longed for.

- MS. Letter. 1862.
Coffee is good for talent, but genius wants prayer.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
There is no greater distance than that between a man in prayer and God.

- Illich, Ivan
When you pray for anyone you tend to modify your personal attitude toward him.

- Peale, Norman Vincent
That prayer has great power which a person makes with all his might. It makes a sour heart sweet, a sad heart merry, a poor heart rich, a foolish heart wise, a timid heart brave, a sick heart well, a blind heart full of sight, a cold heart ardent. It draws down the great God into the little heart; it drives the hungry soul up into the fullness of God; it brings together two lovers, God and the soul, in a wondrous place where they speak much of love.

- Magheburg, Mechthild of
HereÆs my theory about meetings and life; the three things you canÆt fake are erections, competence and creativity. ThatÆs why meetings become toxic they put uncreative people in a situation in which they have to be something they can never be. And the more effort they put into concealing their inabilities, the more toxic the meeting becomes. One of the most common creativity-faking tactics is when someone puts their hands in prayer position and conceals their mouth while they nod at you and say,'Mmmmmm. Interesting.'If pressed, theyÆll add,'IÆll have to get back to you on that.'Then they donÆt say anything else.

- Douglas Coupland
Prayer does not change God, but changes him who prays.

- Soren Kierkegaard
The time to pray is not when we are in a tight spot but just as soon as we get out of it.

- Josh Billings
So we must daily keep things wound: that is, we must pray when prayer seems dry as dust; we must write when we are physically tired, when our hearts are heavy, when our bodies are in pain.

- Madeleine L'Engle
We never understand what we're praying; and God, in His mercy, does not answer our prayers according to our understanding, but according to His wisdom.

- Rich Mullins
We are all weak, finite, simple human beings, standing in the need of prayer. None need it so much as those who think they are strong, those who know it not, but are deluded by self-sufficiency.

- Phillips, Harold C.
Spiritual favors are not always to be looked for, and not always to be relied on.

- Barr, Amelia E.
For prayer is nothing else than being on terms of friendship with God.

- Saint Teresa of Avila
A grandfather was walking through his yard when he heard his granddaughter repeating the alphabet in a tone of voice that sounded like a prayer. He asked her what she was doing. The little girl explained: "I'm praying, but I can't think of exactly the right words, so I'm just saying all the letters, and God will put them together for me, because He knows what I'm thinking."

- Charles B. Vaughan
Prayer is not an old woman's idle amusement. Properly understood and applied, it is the most potent instrument of action.

- Gandhi, Mahatma
Pray without ceasing. In everything give thanks. [I Thessalonians]

- Bible
I have never made but one prayer to God, a very short one: "O Lord, make my enemies ridiculous." And God granted it.

- Voltaire
Prayer is a confession of one's own unworthiness and weakness.

- Gandhi, Mahatma
We must not sit still and look for miracles; up and doing, and the Lord will be with thee. Prayer and pains, through faith in Christ Jesus, will do anything.

- Eliot, Sir John
One single grateful thought raised to heaven is the most perfect prayer.

- G. E. Lessing
