Praying To The Heart Of God

The tragedy of our day is not unanswered prayer but unoffered prayer.  J. Sidlow Baxter

Men may spurn our appeals, reject our message, oppose our arguments, despise our persons, but they are helpless against our prayers.  J. Sidlow Baxter

The Christian on his knees sees more than the philosopher on tiptoe.  Dwight L. Moody

Keep praying, but be thankful that God's answers are wiser than your prayers!  William Culbertson

Prayer is a powerful thing, for God has bound and tied Himself thereto.  None can believe how powerful prayer is, and what it is able to effect, but those who have learned it by experience.  Martin Luther

Prayer is not an argument with God to persuade Him to move things our way, but an exercise by which we are enabled by His Spirit to move ourselves His way.  Leonard Ravenhill

There is not in the world a kind of life more sweet and delightful than that of a continual conversation with God.   Brother Lawrence

Lord, thank you for creating us and for loving us.  Thank you for forming the spirit within us.  Search our hearts, oh Lord, and be compassionate through those times, in anger, frustration and disappointment, we hide from you.  Thank you, Lord for forgiving us when we fail you.  Father, help us to turn knowledge into wisdom and guide our footsteps at each turn along the way of life.  Lord, keep us from all evil that we may hold on to the good in ourselves and others.  We pray for the leaders of our nation and the leaders of all governments that they will look to you for guidance and direction as they make decisions on behalf of all citizens near and far.  Lord, we lift up our praise and thanksgiving to you.  Thank you for your love, your mercy and your grace lovingly bestowed upon us.  Let us seek you and find you in every aspect of our daily activities and may we always be filled with the joy of the Lord and trust in your unfailing kindness now and forever more.  In your precious name we pray, amen.
