Here again I have found wisdom spoken about prayer and meditation.
Prayer comes naturally in a garden.
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.
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.
Prayer is when you talk to God; meditation is when you listen to God.
Prayer is a discipline of your time, you give to God your time, and giving God your time for you.
Running out of time for prayer is like the body running out of time for blood.
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.
The value of persistent prayer is not that He will hear us but that we will finally hear Him.
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
