Quotes about prayer

Who rises from prayer a better man, his prayer is answered. ~George Meredith

No one is a firmer believer in the power of prayer than the devil; not that he practices it, but he suffers from it. ~Guy H. King

The value of consistent prayer is not that He will hear us, but that we will hear Him. ~William McGill

Before we can pray, "Lord, Thy Kingdom come," we must be willing to pray, "My Kingdom go." ~Alan Redpath

Prayer is communication with the Divine. It can be whispered or chanted or written or expressed in the work you do. However it is expressed, it is never in vain. ~Donna Wilk Cardillo

When at night you cannot sleep, talk to the Shepherd and stop counting sheep. ~Author Unknown


  1. My two favorites are about praying for our kingdom to go. That's so challenging but is kind of the whole point. And that's a funny thought to talk to the Shepard instead of talking to Sheep.

  2. Thanks Esther for commenting. That quote made me laugh...I've heard something like it in a song lyric. Says it perfectly!
