Words on Prayer

The goal of prayer is the ear of God, a goal that can only be reached by patient and continuous waiting on Him, pouring out your hearts to Him and permitting Him to speak to us.  -- E.M. Bounds

Do not pray for easy lives.  Pray to be stronger men!  Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers.  Pray for power equal to your tasks.  -- Phillip Brooks

Pray as though everything depended on God. Work as though everything depended on you.  -- Saint Augustine

To be a Christian without prayer is no more possible than to be alive without breathing. -- Martin Luther King, Jr.

Pray often; for prayer is a shield to the soul, a sacrifice to God, and a scourge for Satan. -- John Bunyan

  1. Love this John Bunyan quote. Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress is one of the most famous books in the English language. Truly my favorite. Thanks for posting this wonderful quote. Encouragement as we pass through "Vanity Fair". FYI, Mr. Greatheart was a veteran of Cromwell's army. God Bless You Always, Nancy Mersereau
