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.
Prayer should be the key of the day and the lock of the night.
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.
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.
And Satan trembles when he sees The weakest saint upon his knees.
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.
Prayer is not monologue, but dialogue, God’s voice in response to mine is its most essential part.
