Prayer quotes
Prayer
For I do not believe God means us thus to divide life into two halves - to wear a grave face on Sunday, and to think it out-of-place to even so much as mention Him on a week-day. Do you think He cares to see only kneeling figures and to hear only tones of prayer - and that He does not also love to see the lambs leaping in the sunlight, and to hear the merry voices of the children, as they roll amoung the hay? Surely their innocent laughter is as sweet in His ears as the grandest anthem that ever rolled up from the "dim religious light" of some solemn cathedral?

- Lewis Carroll
Some pray to marry the man they love, my prayer will somewhat vary; I humbly pray to Heaven above that I love the man I marry.

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

- Wilson, Henry
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.
A simple grateful thought turned heavenwards is the most perfect prayer.

- Lessing, Doris
Prayer puts you in touch with the infinite and prepares your mind for the finite.

- Daniel, Peter
For prayer is nothing else than being on terms of friendship with God.

- Saint Teresa of Avila
I don't know of a single foreign product that enters this country untaxed, except the answer to prayer.

- Twain, Mark
It is good to pray for the repair of mistakes, but praying earlier would keep us from making so many. When puzzled, go to prayer and listen.

- Macaulay, J. C.
There are more tears shed over answered prayers than over unanswered prayers.

- Saint Theresa of Jesus
It is no good asking for a simple religion. Real things are not simple. They look simple, but they are not. The table I'm sitting at looks simple: but ask a scientist to tell you what it is really made of - all about the atoms and how the light waves rebound from them and hit my eye and what they do to my optic nerve and what it does to my brain - and, of course, you'll find that what we call'seeing a table'lands you in mysteries and complications which you can hardly get to the end of. A child saying a child's prayer looks simple. And if you are content to stop there, well and good. But if you are not - and the modern world usually is not - if you want to go on and ask what is really happening - then you must be prepared for something difficult. If we ask for something more than simplicity, it is silly then to complain that the something is not more simple.

- C. S. Lewis
There are few men who dare to publish to the world the prayers they make to Almighty God.

- Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
We praise Him, we bless Him, we adore Him, we glorify Him, and we wonder who is that baritone across the aisle and that pretty woman on our right who smells of apple blossoms. Our bowels stir and our cod itches and we amend our prayers for the spiritual life with the hope that it will not be too spiritual.

- Cheever, John
Sometimes the most important thing in a whole day is the rest we take between two deep breaths, or the turning inwards in prayer for five short minutes.

- Hillesum, Etty
No one can pray well, but those who live well.

- Proverb
If the only prayer you ever say in your whole life is "thank you," that would suffice.

- Meister Eckhart
A single grateful thought toward heaven is the most perfect prayer.

- Lessing, Gotthold
To be sure, this requires effort and love, a careful cultivation of the spiritual life, and a watchful, honest, active oversight of all one's mental attitudes towards things and people. It is not to be learned by world-flight, running away from things, turning solitary and going apart from the world. Rather, one must learn an inner solitude, where or with whomsoever he may be. He must learn to penetrate things and find God there, to get a strong impression of God firmly fixed on his mind.

- Eckhart, Meister
Pray for what you want, but work for what you need.

Her eyes are homes of silent prayers.

- Tennyson, Lord Alfred
