The same group of New York pseudo-intellectuals who've put down prayer are the same ones who put down L.A.
Shakespeare is one of the last books one should like to give up, perhaps the one just before the Dying Service in a large Prayer book.
My constant prayer, my number one foreign goal, is to bring peace to Israel. And in the process to Israel's neighbours.
I don't know whether I believe in God or not. I think, really, I'm some sort of Buddhist. But the essential thing is to put oneself in a frame of mind which is close to that of prayer.
I'm really in touch, whether it's prayer or meditation... there are so many powers greater than me in the world. I've been blessed and lucky enough to have been given a gift to share with other people.
The Savior is the perfect example of praying for others with real intent. In His great Intercessory Prayer uttered on the night before His Crucifixion, Jesus prayed for His Apostles and all of the Saints.
David A. Bednar
In religious circles, depression is often deemed to be a spiritual condition that can be cured with prayer.
I also pray for favor and His anointing on my life and ministry that I might have spiritual blessing when I minister to people. They're my principal prayers; I don't have a prayer list that I go down.
When I pray, I pray believing that God will speak to me and give me an answer to that prayer. That's what a calling is. If I pray, a calling means that I feel like I have a sense from God.

Some churches make intercessory prayer part of their weekly schedule. If that's not the case at your church, find another person in the faith to intercede with or go before God on your own.
It is no wonder that advocates of Obamacare blindly push forward with their agenda to force religious Americans to violate their own precepts: in the war between the state and the individual, religion is on the side of the individual and his or her relationship with God. That is why symbolic prayer matters. It is symbolic.
I pray for miracles. I have always found prayer to bring quick results.

Since 1775, when the first Continental Congress called for a national day of prayer, there have been such events called for by almost every President. I saw the figures - 34 out of 44 Presidents have called for a national day of prayer. Some of those who didn't have died in office.
I still say the 'Lord's Prayer' every day. It covers a lot of ground in our relation to the world.
Prayer is the slender nerve that moves the muscle of omnipotence.
Martin Farquhar Tupper
Action is the normal completion of the act of will which begins as prayer. That action is not always external, but it is always some kind of effective energy.

Do I pray? Yes. Prayer is very important to me.
For me, in my Christian belief, prayer is not an opportunity to manipulate God into doing what you want him to. Prayer is an opportunity to have a conversation with God to try to get in tune with what his will is.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
