“Is prayer your steering wheel or your spare tire?” 

Corrie Ten Boom

“I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had no where else to go. My own wisdom and that of all about me seemed insufficient for that day.” 

Abraham Lincoln

“Every time, before you intercede, worship God in His glory, and be quiet first. Think of what joys to hear the prayers of His people, and can perform. Think of privilege and your place and expect good things!” 

Andrew Murray

“Prayer isn’t learned in a class room, but in the closet.” 

Edward McKendree Bounds

“You need to remain in living, lasting functional, abiding union with the Lord Jesus, if you’d like that power in prayer.” 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon

“Prayer is where the action is.” 

John Wesley

“True prayer is quantified by weight, not by length. A oration of length could not have fullness of prayer in it than A groan before God.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon

“If the only prayer you said was thank you, that would be enough.” 

Meister Eckhart

“Talking to men for God is the usual fantastic thing, but speaking to God for men is greater.”

Edward McKendree Bounds

“Hearing God will make a prayer.” 

Andrew Murray

“Prayer doesn’t fit us for the greatest work, prayer is the greater work.” 

Oswald Chambers

“Sometimes I go to God and say, “God, if Thou dost never answer another prayer while I live on this earth, I will still worship Thee as long as I live and in the ages to come for what Thou hast done already. God’s already put me so far in debt that if I were to live one million millenniums I couldn’t pay Him for what He’s done for me.” 

A.W. Tozer

“We must begin to feel that God, might bring down its power to earth, and in the mystery of prayer, he gave us with a power which could move the Heavenly Earth.” 

Andrew Murray

“Help” is a prayer that is always answered. It doesn’t matter how you pray–with your head bowed in silence, or crying out in grief, or dancing. Churches are good for prayer, but so are garages and cars and mountains and showers and dance floors. Years ago I wrote an essay that began, “Some people think that God is in the details, but I have come to believe that God is in the bathroom.” 

Anne Lamott

“Prayer is not asking. Prayer is putting oneself in the hands of God, at His disposition, and listening to His voice in the depth of our hearts.” 

Mother Teresa

“We have to pray with our eyes on God, not on the difficulties.” 

Oswald Chambers

“As the books of Job, Jeremiah, and Habakkuk clearly show, God has a high threshold of tolerance for what appropriate to say in a prayer. God can “handle” my unsuppressed rage. I may well find that my vindictive feelings need God’s correction – but only by taking those feelings to God will I have the opportunity for correction and healing.” 

Philip Yancey

“Prayer can never be in surplus.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon

“I have so much to do that I shall spend the first three hours in prayer.” 

Martin Luther

“The man who mobilizes the church will create the best contribution.” 

Andrew Murray

“A Christian fellowship lives and exists by the intercession of its members for one another, or it collapses. I can no longer condemn or hate a brother for whom I pray, no matter how much trouble he causes me. His face, that hitherto may have been strange and intolerable to me, is transformed in intercession into the countenance of a brother for whom Christ died, the face of a forgiven sinner.” 

Dietrich Bonhoeffer

“Any concern too small to be turned into a prayer is too small to be made into a burden.” 

Corrie Ten Boom

“I’ve seen many men work without praying, though I’ve never seen any good come out about it, but I’ve never seen a guy pray without working.” 

James Hudson Taylor

“Has someone or something pushed your anxiety button? Answer it with prayer!” 

Evinda Lepins

“Our prayers should be for blessings in general, for God knows best what is good for us.'” Moira smiled as she quoted the ancient sage, then shrugged. “It made sense to me. After that, I started laying my problems and needs before God and asking for grace and guidance and whatever other virtues he thought I needed.” 

Irene Hannon

“Those blessings are sweetest that are won with prayer and worn with thanks.” 

Thomas Goodwin

“Let us never forget to pray. God lives. He is near. He is real. He is not only aware of us but cares for us. He is our Father. He is accessible to all who will seek Him.” 

Gordon B. Hinckley

“He who kneels the most, stands the best.” 

D.L. Moody

“In prayer it is better to have a heart without words than words without a heart.”

 John Bunyan

“That is to say, I pray for you. And there’s an intimacy in it. That’s the truth.” 

Marilynne Robinson

“We tend to use prayer as a last resort, but God wants it to be our first line of defense. We pray when there’s nothing else we can do, but God wants us to pray before we do anything at all.

Most of us would prefer, however, to spend our time doing something that will get immediate results. We don’t want to wait for God to resolve matters in His good time because His idea of ‘good time’ is seldom in sync with ours.” 

Oswald Chambers

“In the silence of the heart God speaks. If you face God in prayer and silence, God will speak to you. Then you will know that you are nothing. It is only when you realize your nothingness, your emptiness, that God can fill you with Himself. Souls of prayer are souls of great silence.” 

Mother Teresa

“Go where your best prayers take you.” 

Frederick Buechner

“Prayer may just be the most powerful tool mankind has.”

Ted Dekker

“When you have reached your own room, be kind to those who have chosen different doors and to those who are still in the hall. If they are wrong they need your prayers all the more; and if they are your enemies, then you are under orders to pray for them. That is one of the rules common to the whole house.” 

C.S. Lewis

“… Goals not bathed in prayer or brought in humility before the Lord turn out to be downright useless. They don’t go anywhere. They don’t accomplish anything.” 

Charles R. Swindoll

“In the end, the number of prayers we say may contribute to our happiness, but the number of prayers we answer may be of even greater importance.” 

Dieter F. Uchtdorf

“Be not forgetful of prayer. Every time you pray, if your prayer is sincere, there will be new feeling and new meaning in it, which will give you fresh courage, and you will understand that prayer is an education.” 

Fyodor Dostoevsky

“And we pray, and we pray and we pray and we pray.

Everyday, everyday, everyday, everyday…” 

Bone Thugs and Harmony

“I have now concentrated all my prayers into one, and that one prayer is this, that I may die to self, and live wholly to Him.” 

Charles H. Spurgeon

– John Wesley

“God only requires of his adult children, that their hearts be truly purified, and that they offer him continually the wishes and vows that naturally spring from perfect love. For these desires, being the genuine fruits of love, are the most perfect prayers that can spring from it. It is scarce conceivable how strait the way is wherein God leads them that follow him; and how dependent on him we must be, unless we are wanting in our faithfulness to him.”

– John Wesley

“I build on Christ, the rock of ages; on his sure mercies described in his word, and on his promises, all which I know are yea and amen.” 

– John Wesley

– Dwight Lyman Moody

– Dwight Lyman Moody

“We must have a warrant for our prayers. If we have some great desire, we must search the scriptures to find if it be right to ask it.” 

– Dwight Lyman Moody

“There is no true prayer without confession. As long as we have unconfessed sin in our soul, we are not going to have power with God in prayer. He says if we regard iniquity in our hearts, He will not hear us, much less answer. As long as we are living in any known sin, we have no power in prayer. God is not going to hear it.” 

– Dwight Lyman Moody

“Prayer is a serious thing. We may be taken at our words.” 

– Dwight Lyman Moody

“I never saw a useful Christian who was not a student of the Bible. If a man neglects his Bible, he may pray and ask God to use him in His work; but God cannot make much use of him, for there is not much for the Holy Ghost to work upon.” 

– Dwight Lyman Moody

“The impression that a praying mother leaves upon her children is life-long. Perhaps when you are dead and gone your prayer will be answered.”

– Dwight Lyman Moody

“If we do not love one another, we certainly shall not have much power with God in prayer.” 

– Dwight Lyman Moody

“Many a professing Christian is a stumbling-block because his worship is divided. On Sunday he worships God; on weekdays God has little or no place in his thoughts.” 

– Dwight Lyman Moody

“Sometimes when your child talks, your friends cannot understand what he says; but the mother understands very well. So if our prayer comes from the heart, God understands our language.” 

– Dwight Lyman Moody

“How many people would like to get up in a social prayer-meeting to say a few words for Christ, but there is such a cold spirit of criticism in the church that they dare not do it.” 

– Dwight Lyman Moody

“Next to the wonder of seeing my Savior will be, I think, the wonder that I made so little use of the power of prayer.” 

– Dwight Lyman Moody

–  Dwight Lyman Moody

“He who kneels the most, stands the best.” 

– Dwight Lyman Moody

“I believe many a man is praying to God to fill him, when he is full already with something else. Before we pray that God would fill us, I believe we ought to pray Him to empty us.” 

– Dwight Lyman Moody

“Before we pray that God would fill us, I believe we ought to pray Him to empty us.” 

– Dwight Lyman Moody

“I believe this is a mistake a great many of us are making; we are trying to do God’s work with the grace God gave us ten years ago. We say, if it is necessary, we will go on with the same grace. Now, what we want is a fresh supply, a fresh anointing and fresh power, and if we seek it, and seek it with all our hearts, we will obtain it.”

 – Dwight Lyman Moody

“The world knows little of the works wrought by prayer.” 

– Dwight Lyman Moody

“How far away is Heaven? It is not so far as some imagine. It wasn’t very far from Daniel. It was not so far off that Elijah’s prayer and those of others could not be heard there. Men full of the Spirit can look right into heaven.”

 – Dwight Lyman Moody

“In our prayers, we talk to God, in our Bible study, God talks to us, and we had better let God do most of the talking.” 

– Dwight Lyman Moody

“Unless the Spirit of God is with us, we cannot expect that our prayers will be answered.” 

– Dwight Lyman Moody

“It is not the man that can preach the best that is the most successful, but the man who knows how to get his people together to pray.” 

– Dwight Lyman Moody

“You can always tell when a man is a great ways from God–he is always talking about himself, how good he is. But the moment he sees God by the eye of faith, he is down on his knees, and, like Job, he cries, “Behold I am vile.” 

– Dwight Lyman Moody

“Prayer does not mean that I am to bring God down to my thoughts and my purposes, and bend his government according to my foolish, silly, and sometimes sinful notions. Prayer means that I am to be raised up into feeling, into union and design with him; that I am to enter into his counsel and carry out his purpose fully.” 

– Dwight Lyman Moody

“It is easier for me to have faith in the Bible than to have faith in D.L. Moody, for Moody has failed me lots of times.”

 – Dwight Lyman Moody

“Some men’s prayers need to be cut short at both ends and set on fire in the middle.” 

– Dwight Lyman Moody

“Every one of our children will be brought into the ark, if we pray and work earnestly for them.” 

– Dwight Lyman Moody

“Grace isn’t a little prayer you chant before receiving a meal. It’s a way to live. The law tells me how crooked I am. Grace comes along and straightens me out.” 

– Dwight Lyman Moody

“I firmly believe that the moment our hearts are emptied of pride and selfishness and ambition and self-seeking and every thing that is contrary to God’s law, the Holy Ghost will come and fill every corner of our hearts; but if we are full of pride and conceit and ambition and self-seeking and pleasure and the world, there is no room for the Spirit of God; and I believe many a man is praying to God to fill him when he is full already with something else.” 

– Dwight Lyman Moody

“It may be that at this moment every battlement of heaven is alive with the redeemed. There is a sainted mother watching for her daughter. Have you no response to that long hushed voice which has prayed for you so often? And for you, young man, are there no voices there that have prayed for you? And are there none whom you promised once to meet again, if not on earth, in heaven?” 

– Dwight Lyman Moody

Prayer Is A Shield To The Soul – Prayer And Devotional Quotes – John Bunyan.

“The reason why the Christians in this day are at such a loss as to some things is that they are contented with what comes from man’s mouth, without searching and kneeling before God to know of Him the truth of things.”

John Bunyan

“If you are not a praying person, you are not a Christian.”

John Bunyan

“In all your prayers forget not to thank the Lord for his mercies.”

– John Bunyan

“Pray and read, read and pray; for a little from God is better than a great deal from men.”

– John Bunyan

“Here is the life of prayer, when in or with the Spirit, a man being made sensible of sin, and how to come to the Lord for mercy; he comes, I say, in the strength of the Spirit, and crieth Father. That one word spoken in faith is better than a thousand prayers, as men call them, written and read, in a formal, cold, lukewarm way.”

– John Bunyan

“The best prayer I ever prayed had enough sin to damn the whole world.”

– John Bunyan

“There is enough sin in my best prayer to send the whole world to Hell.” – John Bunyan

– John Bunyan

– John Bunyan

“To pray rightly, you must make God your hope, stay, and all. Right prayer sees nothing substantial or worth being concerned about except God.”

“Take heed of driving so hard after this world, as to hinder thyself and family from those duties towards God, which thou art by grace obliged to; as private prayer, reading the scriptures, and Christian conference. It is a base thing for men so to spend themselves and families after this world, as that they disengage their heart to God’s worship.”

– John Bunyan

“Pray often, for prayer is a shield to the soul, a sacrifice to God, and a scourge for Satan.”

“God speaks once, yea twice, yet Man perceiveth it not, in a Dream, in a Vision of the night, when deep Sleep falleth upon men, in slumbering upon the bed. We need not, when abed, to lie awake to talk with God, he can visit us while we sleep, and cause us then to hear his Voice. Our heart oft-times wakes when we sleep, and God can speak to that, either by words, by proverbs, by signs and similitudes, as well as if one was awake.”

– John Bunyan

“Prayer will make a man cease from sin, or sin will entice a man to cease from prayer.”

– John Bunyan

“Prayer is an ordinance of God, that must continue with a soul so long as it is on this side glory.”

– John Bunyan

“A sensible thanksgiving-and-gratitude-in-empowering-you-to-live-a-healthier-life/">thanksgiving for mercies received is a mighty prayer in the Spirit of God. It prevails with Him unspeakably.”

– John Bunyan

“Sincerity is the same in a corner alone, as it is before the face of the world. It knows not how to wear two vizards, one for an appearance before men, and another for a short snatch in a corner; but it must have God, and be with him in the duty of prayer. It is not lip-labour that it doth regard, for it is the heart that God looks at, and that which sincerity looks at, and that which prayer comes from, if it be that prayer which is accompanied with sincerity.”

– John Bunyan

Jesus Heal My Wounds – Prayer

Jesus Heal My Wounds – Prayer.

Lord I really do have wounds that need healing.
I have heartaches. I have pains.
In places no one can see.

Sometimes I get really angry.
I don’t justify my actions.

Lord, sin is sin.
Lord anger is anger.
And I struggle with this sometimes.

I have been disappointed by life.
I have been let down by everything.
I have been mistreated by people.

Life has been tough.
And yes Lord.
I do realize this makes blaming others easier.
It makes it easy to convict and pass judgement.
It makes it easy to call people good or bad.

It’s tough Lord.
It’s tough for us all.

But your grace is sufficient.
Your grace will see me to the other side.
Your grace will carry me through.

The world might be dark right now.
Filled with hate and malice.
Full of pain and suffering.

But I’m comforted because I know. That you are in control. 

Though we are struggling my sweet Jesus, 

I know that you are familiar with our affliction. 

Jesus I need you desperately.

Please come and heal my wounds.

Please come and cure my pain.

Pour balm over my crevices and the places that lack.

Thank you for answered prayer.

In the precious name of Jesus.

Bible Verses:

The Lord builds up Jerusalem;
He gathers together the outcasts of Israel.
3 He heals the brokenhearted
And binds up their wounds.
4 He counts the number of the stars;
He calls them all by name.
5 Great is our Lord, and mighty in power;
His understanding is infinite.
6 The Lord lifts up the humble;
He casts the wicked down to the ground.

Psalms 147:2-6

For I will restore health to you
And heal you of your wounds,’ says the Lord,
‘Because they called you an outcast saying:
“This is Zion;
No one seeks her.” ’
18 “Thus says the Lord:
‘Behold, I will bring back the captivity of Jacob’s tents,
And have mercy on his dwelling places;
The city shall be built upon its own mound,
And the palace shall remain according to its own plan.
