Prayer is the nearest approach to God and the highest enjoyment of Him that we are capable of in this life.
Prayer does not change God, but it changes him who prays.
Don't pray when it rains if you don't pray when the sun shines.
Prayer is exhaling the spirit of man and inhaling the spirit of God.
Practical prayer is harder on the soles of your shoes than on the knees of your trousers.
Prayer should be the key of the day and the lock of the night.
Most people do not pray; they only beg.
George Bernard Shaw
God warms his hands at man's heart when he prays.
A grateful heart is a beginning of greatness. It is an expression of humility. It is a foundation for the development of such virtues as prayer, faith, courage, contentment, happiness, love, and well-being.
James E. Faust
Complaint is the largest tribute heaven receives and the sincerest part of our devotion.
And the LORD said unto him, I have heard thy prayer and thy supplication, that thou hast made before me: I have hallowed this house, which thou hast built, to put my name there for ever; and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually.
1 Kings 9:3 (KJV)
In worship, God imparts himself to us.
Prayer draws us near to our own souls.
Saying one's prayers isn't exactly the same thing as praying.
To pray well is the better half of study.
For thou, O LORD of hosts, God of Israel, hast revealed to thy servant, saying, I will build thee an house: therefore hath thy servant found in his heart to pray this prayer unto thee.
Samuel 7:27 (KJV)
Our prayers should be for blessings in general, for God knows best what is good for us.
Prayer must never be answered: if it is, it ceases to be prayer and becomes correspondence.
