Quotations on Prayer
A collection of quotes on prayer.
Pluck a lily, and because of its no longer receiving nourishment from the plant, it loses its fragrance and soon withers and dies. Prayer is the means by which we receive nourishment to our souls. Cease praying, and the result will be a loss of spiritual fragrance, decay and death. - Blanche Millhorn
Not a single spot in our life is so barren but that if it be watered by prayer, it will produce some tender blade or blooming flower. - Charles E. Orr
Prayer has been likened to a key. Such, indeed, it is - a key to God's great storehouse; a key to the unsearchable riches of Christ. With it we can obtain all that we need for soul or body. Let us freely use this wonderful key. - J. W. Lowder
Prayer is as necessary as the air, as the blood in our bodies, as anything to keep us alive - to keep us alive to the grace of God. - Mother Teresa
A prayer from a humble, earnest, believing, obedient soul is never unavailing. It reaches God. Just as sure as God exists, so sure will he respect such a prayer. His word says so, and it can never fail. - J. W. Lowder
He that loveth little prayeth little, but he that loveth much prayeth much. - Augustine
An excerpt from the 1912 book Odors from Golden Vials by Charles E. Orr: "He [Satan] will do all he can to hinder the children of God in their prayers. He will tell them that they have no time for prayer. But the Christian must take time to pray. No other religious exercise is so important as prayer; so the Christian must pray, if he does nothing besides. This temptation to leave off prayer because of not having time is a cunning device of the enemy of prayer."
Be faithful to the time spent in prayer and make sure that at least half of your prayer is spent is silence. This will bring you closer to Jesus. - Mother Teresa
Prayer is the wings of the soul with which it takes flight to the throne of grace. It is the sweet incense that ascends to the God of all creation. - D. Meyer
