Quotes on Prayer! VI

Quotes of wisdom from the saints of the past I pray that their lessons learned may be applied to my heart and yours, Amen.

It is wonderful the effect of a single verse of Scripture when the Spirit of God applies it to the soul. What power would come upon the soul if we would grasp a single line of Scripture and suck the honey out of it till our soul is filled with sweetness.

C. H. Spurgeon

But what does asking for the Kingdom mean? A Kingdom is the domain of a King. Praying for God’s Kingdom to come is, more than anything else, asking for His rule or governance to be released into a situation. Whether it be for a nation, a city, an organization, a home, or an individual, when we ask for the Kingdom we are saying, “God, would You come and rule in this affair?” And when God’s rule is manifested, all is well.

Dutch Sheets

If a church prays in unity and are of one accord that church will never become a drifting ghost ship manned with dead man’s bones.

 Thomas

O Almighty God, who hast built thy Church upon the foundation of the Apostles and Prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the head corner-stone; Grant us so to be joined together in unity of spirit by their doctrine, that we may be made a Holy Temple acceptable unto Thee. Amen

Book of Common Prayer

When Jesus uttered the simple request to His Father, “ Thy Kingdom come,” He was not only thinking of the Messianic Kingdom, but also implied that He was inviting Him to establish His Kingdom in the hearts and lives of men.

W. Phillip Keller

God never ceases to speak to us, but the noise of the world without and the tumult of  our passions within bewilder us and prevent us from listening to Him.

Francois Fenelon 

The sooner I forget myself in the desire that He may be glorified, the richer will the blessing be that prayer will bring to myself. 

Andrew Murray

As you read through the Bible, write down in your journal every time God asks a question. As you go through your day, try to answer that question, with words and actions.

Mark Buchanan 

Lord, there are times when I am so busy sending panic memos off to You that I fail to discern Your voice assuring me that Your Grace is sufficient. 

A. W. Tozer

They who have steeped their souls in prayer 

Can every anguish calmly bear.

My Last Prayer!

I have given it all away,

No more I have to give,

but I must give it too.

So I cry out

My Lord I am drained

my body can no longer take another step

My heart has been shattered

as life’s blood drains out

yes broken is my body

yes my needs are too many

let me forever rest here at Your feet?

Here at my Abba’s feet!

I am sure death has won!

So on this day I have lived

 because I given it all

for you the many to be free.

I was granted to forever rest

as Yeshua carries me forever

past death’s defeat.

Amen.

John 10: 18; “No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of Myself. I have the power to lay it down, and I have the power to take it again. This command I have received from My Father.”

My tribute to our fallen heroes, thank-you. I honor you for your sacrifice to our country for the freedom you gave us and paid for in blood. I weep for the grief of your love ones and pray for the peace of the Lord to be with them now and forever, Amen.

Quotes on Prayer! V

Here again I have found wisdom spoken about prayer and meditation.

Prayer comes naturally in a garden.

Cindy Crosby

All mothers have a peculiar place in the divine economy. Who can tell the far – reaching effects of a godly mother’s prayers, counsel, and example? The most hardened men melt when reminded of a good mother, no matter how far they have strayed from her precepts.

H. A. Ironside

Prayer arises from a heart that longs to be close to the Father. Satan uses busyness to keep people just to busy to give the Father the time we need.

  Thomas 

It is not the busy skimming over religious books or the careless hastening through religious duties which makes for a strong Christian faith. Rather, it is unhurried meditation on the gospel truths and exposing of our minds to these truths that yield the fruit of a sanctified character.

Maurice Roberts

Prayer is when you talk to God; meditation is when you listen to God.

Diana Robinson

Prayer is a discipline of your time, you give to God your time, and giving God your time for you.

 Thomas

Running out of time for prayer is like the body running out of time for blood.

Unknown 

God will speak to us if we read and study and obey the Word of God! But when he does speak, we should speak back to Him in prayer and devotion. 

A. W. Tozer

Solitude and silence . . . Supply the state most conducive to the still small voice of God.

Philip Yancey

The value of persistent prayer is not that He will hear us but that we will finally hear Him.

William McGill

God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our conscience, but shouts in our pains: it is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world.

C. S. Lewis

Yahweh’s Poet!

Who is Yahweh’s Poet?
He is the man who has
touched the face of Yeshua
with burdens, broken lives, and
crushed spirits of others.
Who is Yahweh’s Poet?
He is the man who has
embraced the heart beat of Yeshua
with the anguish, torment,
and fears of others.
Who is Yahweh’s Poet?
He is the man who has
kissed the feet of Yeshua
with the tearful cries of abused,
hungry, lost children.
Who is Yahweh’s Poet?
He is the man who boldly prays,
with sorrowful sighs, lamenting groans,
and distressful outcries.
For if the world could hear
the words that are branded upon his soul
all would turn and run in fear.
His lips are so formed
the world shall never hear him sing.
Who is Yahweh’s Poet?
He is the man who Yeshua
gave pen and paper,
and spoke write for Me
the songs you sing at My throne!
So all the world shall hear you sing!
This is Yahweh’s Poet!

Quotes on Prayer! IV

May there be a blessing found in these words for all who reads them, Amen.

There is no power like that of prevailing prayer——of Abraham pleading for Sodom, Jacob wrestling in the stillness of the night, Moses standing in the breach, Hannah intoxicated with sorrow, David heartbroken with remorse and grief, Jesus in sweat and blood. Add to this list from the records of the church your personal observation and experience, and always there is cost of passion unto blood. Such prayer prevails. It turns ordinary mortals into men of power. It brings power. It brings fire. It brings rain. It brings God.

Samuel Chadwick

Prayer begins where human capacity ends.

Marian Anderson

Don’t pray when it rains if you don’t pray when the sun shines.

Satchel Paige 

Someone said that when we work, we work, but when we pray, God works.

Bill Hybels

We pray with words until the words are cut off and we are left in a state of wonder. 

Isaac the Syrian

To be complete, prayer needs an early, significant dose of spiritual silence. Such silence is necessary if the believer hopes to minister effectively for Jesus. 

Dick Eastman

 

Who rises from prayer a better man, his prayer is answered.

George Meredith 

The great battles, the battles that decide our destiny and the destiny of generations yet unborn, are not fought on the public platforms, but in moments of agony.

Samuel Logan Brengle

The beginning of prayer is silence.

Mother Teresa

It is wonderful that in our prayers we not only speak but can also listen. We cannot do so at once; we must get accustomed to it. God’s hidden fellowship is found by those who fear him.

Corrie Ten Boom

Quotes on Prayer! III

I hope you shall find a blessing in these!

And it is earnest Prayer, 

with heart open on the table before God, 

that brings us close to Him,

and reveals both; 

the most about Him, 

and about ourselves.

Truth Slinger

Prayer should be the key of the day and the lock of the night.

George Herbert

Transformation comes, in the end, not from an act of will, but an act of grace. We can only ask for it and keep asking.

Philip Yancey

Prayer is the language of a man burdened with a sense of need.

E. M. Bounds

Intercessory prayer might be defined as loving our neighbor on our knees. 

Charles H. Brent

Prayer is a strong wall and fortress of the church; it is a goodly Christian weapon.

Martin Luther

And Satan trembles when he sees The weakest saint upon his knees.

William Cowper

What seem our worst prayers may really be, in God’s eyes, our best. Those, I mean, which are least supported by devotional feeling. For these may come from a deeper level than feeling. God sometimes seems to speak to us most intimately when He catches us, off our guard.

C. S. Lewis

Silence is the mother of prayer. It frees the prisoner; it guards the divine flame; it watches over reasoning; it protects the sense of penitence.

John Climacus

Prayer is not monologue, but dialogue, God’s voice in response to mine is its most essential part.

Andrew Murray 

Please Pray for Purple?

Many of have read about Purple in my post “Giving Baby Jesus for Christmas” if not I give a link at the end. Right now Purple needs our prayers her health is deteriorating not only that she has to endure many things many of us never shall. She is watched 24/7 by two woman staff who are not godly woman. They pick what is on TV and Purple has to sit with her back to the TV. Purple has never been to church and is not permitted to go. Purple has never sung a worship song. Purple has never worshiped with other believers. Purple has no fellowship. The only thing she has is her Bible and someone dropping in now and them with words of encouragement. She is doing the best she can I do not have much access to her anymore. Please Pray For Purple? Thank-you and God Bless.

Quotes on Prayer! II

I think I shall use my blog to get all the quotes on prayer into one place. As I do this, I hope you do not mind if I share them!

The presence of God is not imaginary; neither is prayer the indulgence of a delightful fancy. . . . A purified and Spirit-controlled imagination is the sacred gift of seeing the ability to peer beyond the veil and gaze with astonished wonder upon the beauties and mysteries of things Holy and Eternal.
A. W. Tozer

Prayer is not designed to inform God, but to give man a sight of his misery; to humble his heart, to excite his desire, to inflame his faith, to animate his hope, to raise his soul from earth to heaven.
Adam Clarke

Trouble and perplexity drive me to prayer and prayer drives away perplexity and trouble.
Philipp Melanchthon

What can be more excellent than prayer; what is more profitable to our life; what sweeter to our souls; what more sublime, in the course of our whole life, than the practice of prayer!
Augustine of Hippo

I remember my mother’s prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life.
Abraham Lincoln

I have had prayers answered—-most strangely so sometimes–but I think our Heavenly Father’s loving-kindness has been even more evident in what He has refused me.
Lewis Carroll

We are silent at the beginning of the day because God should have the first word, and we are silent before going to sleep because the last word also belongs to God.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

In prayer it is better to have a heart without words than words with out a heart.
John Bunyan

It is only love that can fit us for the work of intercession.
Andrew Murray

Any concern too small to turned into a prayer is too small to be made into a burden.
Corrie Ten Boom

His Inspiration!

Poems are just Prayers!
Poems are just Worship!
Where have I found His inspiration?
In mornings as the Sun
with pinks, violets, reds and greens
that breaks the emptiness of darkness
as song birds of worship
welcome the new day with
Praise and Glory carried away
to Abba Father’s Throne.
Where have I found His inspiration?
As I have watched a leaf
tumbled along in the
crisp mellow breeze
in an autumn grassy field
as the Holy Spirit
is whispering enlightenment.
Where have I found His inspiration?
Mesmerized by the babbling of a brook
water tumbling over and over the rock
as if an unending flow
of Forgiveness, Mercy, Grace,
and Love the Life blood
from Yeshua’s Heart.
Where do I find His inspiration?
Even now I look around
I can see new poems speaking life,
Poems are just prayers!
Poems are just worship!
The place my heart
now always wants to be!

Quotes on Prayer!

These are some Quotes on prayer I have found through the years.

There are two kinds of people those who say to God. “Thy will be done,” and those to whom God says, “All right, then, have it your way.”  C. S. Lewis

People are drawn to prayer because they know that God’s power flows primarily to people who pray. Bill Hybels

If you are willing to commit your prayer to paper, you probably really mean it…. To write it down is one step in self-committal.          E. Stanley Jones 

If we are not entirely dedicated to our own prayers, we should not expect God to wast time with us. Charles L. Allen

Nothing brings such leanness into a man’s soul as lack of prayer.    C. H. Spurgeon

The devil smiles when we make plans. He laughs when we get too busy. But he trembles when we pray—-especially when we pray together.  Corrie ten Boom

The greatest thing one person can do for another is to pray for him. If at this moment you pray for someone, even though he is on the other side of the globe, the Lord Jesus will touch Him.                    Corrie ten Boom

None can believe how powerful prayer is, and what it is able to effect, but those who have learned it by experience. Martin Luther

Prayer requires more of the heart than of the tongue.  Adam Clarke

The fewer the words, the better the prayer.   Martin Luther
