If Only for a Word of Prayer


“Relying on God has to begin all over and over again every day as if nothing had yet been done” -C.S. Lewis

“Prayer is not a monologue, it is a conversation”. – Andrew Murray

“Prayer is exhaling the spirit of man and inhaling the spirit of God.” – Edwin Keith

“I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had no where else to go. My own wisdom and that of all about me seemed insufficient for that day.” – Abraham Lincoln

“The function of prayer is not to influence God, but rather to change the nature of the one who prays.” – Soren Kierkegaard

“Prayer is the link between God’s inexhaustible resources and people’s needs… God is the source of power, but we are the instrument He uses to link the two together.” -Charles Stanley

“Prayer is the exercise of drawing on the grace of God.” – Oswald Chambers

“Praying puts us at risk of getting involved in God’s conditions. Be slow to pray. Praying most often doesn’t get us what we want but what God wants, something quite at variance with what we conceive to be in our best interests.” – Eugene Peterson

“Prayer is not asking. It is a longing of the soul. It is daily admission of one’s weakness. It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without a heart.” – Mahatma Gandhi

“Is prayer your steering wheel or your spare tire?” – Corrie ten Boom

“In the silence of the heart God speaks. If you face God in prayer and silence, God will speak to you. Then you will know that you are nothing. It is only when you realize your nothingness, your emptiness, that God can fill you with Himself. Souls of prayer are souls of great silence.” – Mother Teresa
