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
