Prayer quotes
Prayer
When you pray for anyone you tend to modify your personal attitude toward him.

- Peale, Norman Vincent
Work as if you were to live a hundred years. Pray as if you were to die tomorrow.

- Franklin, Benjamin
Faith is not without worry or care, but faith is fear that has said a prayer.

Battering the gates of heaven with the storms of prayer.

- Tennyson, Lord Alfred
I believe if we introduced the Lord's Prayer here, senators would propose a large number of amendments to it.

- Wilson, Henry
Pray for what you want, but work for what you need.

Do not make prayer a monologue -- make it a conversation.

There are many things that are essential to arriving at true peace of mind, and one of the most important is faith, which cannot be acquired without prayer.

- Wooden, John
Since it has been my lot to find, at every parting of the road, the helping hand of comrade kind to help me with my heavy load, And since I have no gold to give and love alone must make amends, my humble prayer is, while I live -- God, make me worthy of my friends.

How can we attain to the blessed and noble state of mind--the mind of Christ, who must needs be about His Father's business, which is doing good? Only by prayer and practice. There is no more use in praying without practising than there is in practising without praying. You cannot learn to walk without walking; no more can you learn to do good without trying to do good.

- Sermons for the Times. 1855.

Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers. [1 Peter 3:7]

- Bible
FOREORDINATION, n. This looks like an easy word to define, but when I consider that pious and learned theologians have spent long lives in explaining it, and written libraries to explain their explanations; when I remember the nations have been divided and bloody battles caused by the difference between foreordination and predestination, and that millions of treasure have been expended in the effort to prove and disprove its compatibility with freedom of the will and the efficacy of prayer, praise, and a religious life, -- recalling these awful facts in the history of the word, I stand appalled before the mighty problem of its signification, abase my spiritual eyes, fearing to contemplate its portentous magnitude, reverently uncover and humbly refer it to His Eminence Cardinal Gibbons and His Grace Bishop Potter.

- Ambrose Bierce
The object of most prayers is to wangle an advance on good intentions.

- Brault, Robert
Joy is prayer - Joy is strength - Joy is love - Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls.

- Mother Teresa
If this obstacle is from Thee, Lord, I accept it; but if it is from Satan, I refuse him and all his works in the name of Calvary.

- Kuhn, Isobel
He fought till he could fight no more, and then died like a hero, with all his wounds in front; and may God have mercy on his soul.
"That last was a Popish prayer, Master Frank," said old Mr. Carey.
"Most worshipful sir, you surely would not wish God not to have mercy on his soul?"
"No--Eh? Of course not, for that's all settled by now, for he is dead, poor fellow!"
"And you can't help being a little fond of him still?"
"Eh? Why, I should be a brute if I were not. Fond of him? why, I would sooner have given my forefinger than that he should have gone to the dogs."
"Then, my dear sir, if you feel for him still, in spite of all his faults, how do you know that God may not feel for him in spite of all his faults? For my part," said Frank, in his fanciful way, "without believing in that Popish purgatory, I cannot help holding with Plato that such heroical souls, who have wanted but little of true greatness here, are hereafter, by strait discipline, brought to a better mind."

- Westward Ho! chap. v. 1854.
Prayer is the only refuge against the Walpurgis-dance of the witches and the fiends, which at hapless moments whirl unbidden through a mortal brain.

- Two Years Ago, chap. xix. 1856.
Safe! There is no safety but from God, and that comes by prayer and faith.

- Hypatia. 1852.
