Those Blessings Are Sweetest That Are Won With Prayer And Worn With Thanks – Prayer Quotes.



“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

It Is The Season Of The Blessed Hope - Hope, Assurance And Comfort Quotes - Aiden Wilson Tozer Blog Post Banner Image

It Is The Season Of The Blessed Hope – Hope, Assurance And Comfort Quotes – Aiden Wilson Tozer.


“The vague and tenuous hope that God is too kind to punish the ungodly has become a deadly opiate for the consciences of millions.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“Abounding sin is the terror of the world, but abounding grace is the hope of mankind.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“When God created the heavens and the earth, darkness was upon the face of the deep. When the Eternal Son became flesh, He was carried for a time in the darkness of the sweet virgin’s womb. When He died for the life of the world, it was in the darkness, seen by no one at the last. When He arose from the dead, it was ,’very early in the morning.” No one saw Him rise. It is as if God were saying, “What I am is all that need matter to you, for there lie your hope and your peace. I will do what I will do, and it will all come to light at last, but how I do it is My secret. Trust Me, and be not afraid.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“To believe actively that our Heavenly Father constantly spreads around us providential circumstances that work for our present good and our everlasting well-being brings to the soul a veritable benediction. Most of us go through life praying a little, planning a little, jockeying for position, hoping but never being quite certain of anything, and always secretly afraid that we will miss the way. This is a tragic waste of truth and never gives rest to the heart.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“Yet if we would know God and for other’s sake tell what we know we must try to speak of his love. All Christians have tried but none has ever done it very well. I can no more do justice to that awesome and wonder-filled theme than a child can grasp a star. Still by reaching toward the star the child may call attention to it and even indicate the direction one must look to see it. So as I stretch my heart toward the high shining love of God someone who has not before known about it may be encouraged to look up and have hope.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“The ancient image of God whispers within every man of everlasting hope; somewhere he will continue to exist. Still he cannot rejoice, for the light that lighteth every man that cometh into the world troubles his conscience, frightening him with proofs of guilt and evidences of coming death. So is he ground between the upper millstone of hope and the nether stone of fear.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“What God in His sovereignty may yet do on a world-scale I do not claim to know. But what He will do for the plain man or woman who seeks His face I believe I do know and can tell others. Let any man turn to God in earnest, let him begin to exercise himself unto godliness, let him seek to develop his powers of spiritual receptivity by trust and obedience and humility, and the results will exceed anything he may have hoped in his leaner and weaker days.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“Let us beware of tinkering with our inner life in hope ourselves to rend the veil. God must do everything for us. Our part is to yield and trust. We must confess, forsake, repudiate the self-life, and then reckon it crucified. But we must be careful to distinguish lazy “acceptance” from the real work of God. We must insist upon the work being done. We dare not rest content with a neat doctrine of self-crucifixion. That is to imitate Saul and spare the best of the sheep and the oxen.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“Holiness, as taught in the Scriptures, is not based upon knowledge on our part. Rather, it is based upon the resurrected Christ in-dwelling us and changing us into His likeness.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“The only cross in all of history that was turned into an altar was the cross on which Jesus Christ died. It was a Roman cross. They nailed Him on it, and God, in His majesty and mystery, turned it into an altar. The Lamb who was dying in the mystery and wonder of God was turned into the Priest who offered Himself. No one else was a worthy offering.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“Let any man turn to God in earnest, let him begin to exercise himself unto godliness, let him seek to develop his powers of spiritual receptivity by trust and obedience and humility, and the results will exceed anything he may have hoped in his leaner and weaker days.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“If you were fine like an archangel, made thousands of dollars, never failed and never fumbled, you would be a saint, and there would be no place in God’s grace for you. Because you are the kind of person you are and have fits of slipping back a little, the grace of God operates toward you. This is your hope. So I say, be cheerful, be hopeful, dare to rise and say, “I’ll not sit and be gloomy anymore. I will dare to believe that the grace of God, that vast grace of God, is big enough for me.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“Let us be alert to the season in which we are living. It is the season of the Blessed Hope, calling for us to cut our ties with the world and build ourselves on this One who will soon appear. He is our hope—a Blessed Hope enabling us to rise above our times and fix our gaze upon Him.”
