Quote :: Prayer

"We need more transparency in the church, not fear of it. It's difficult for men and women alike to be transparent in an evangelical church. You put something on the prayer chain, and you never know when your next door neighbor is going to be talking about it." - Mary Stuart Van Leeuwen, interviewed in The Door (Jan-Feb 1992)

"How can you expect to keep your powers of hearing when you never want to listen? That God should have time for you, you seem to take as much for granted as that you cannot have time for Him." - Dag Hammerskjold in Markings

"Heaven is full of answers to prayers for which no one ever bothered to ask." - Billy Graham, quoted in Encounter Weekly online

"When life knocks you to your knees - well, that's the best position in which to pray, isn't it?"- Ethel Barrymore

"No Christian rises higher than his praying." - Source unknown

"To substitute other forces for prayer, retires God and materializes the whole movement." - E. M. Bounds

"What seem our worst prayers, those least supported by devotional feeling, may really be, in God's eyes, our best." - C.S. Lewis, Leadership 1991

"If God has left some things contingent on man's thinking and working why may he not have left some things contingent on man's praying? The testimony of the great souls is a clear affirmative to this: some things never without thinking; some things never without working; some things never without praying! Prayer is one of the three forms of man's cooperation with God." - Harry Emerson Fosdick in The Meaning of Prayer
