The Holy Ghost does not flow through methods, but through men. He does not come on machinery, but on men. He does not anoint plans, but men - men of prayer.
Edward McKendree Bounds
I really like worship music. It settles my soul. Gets me back on track. The lyrics are almost like a prayer, so it's my go-to.
I never set out to write prayers at all. But there was a span of time when I didn't find it easy to pray, but, when I went to write one of the things I had to write, a prayer would come.
Growing up, I came to love Egypt and respect Islam, but I never thought to go beyond the surface. Back in Canada, many of my father's Egyptian friends questioned his decision not to raise his only child more strictly in the faith. I was not taught salat, the Muslim ritual of prayer, nor did I study Arabic.
Shereen El Feki
I so earnestly believe that prayer can be helpful and guide you and protect you and inspire you. I mean, I'm in awe.
We gather for prayer, and reading the Bible, and singing the songs of David.
An investor doesn't have a prayer of picking a manager that can deliver true alpha.
Prayer for many is like a foreign land. When we go there, we go as tourists. Like most tourists, we feel uncomfortable and out of place. Like most tourists, we therefore move on before too long and go somewhere else.
Robert McAfee Brown
I first began to read religious books at school, and especially the Bible, when I was eleven years old; and almost immediately commenced a habit of secret prayer.
Francis W. Newman
Prayer is our invitation to God to intervene in the affairs of earth. It is our request for Him to work His ways in this world.
Whether the prayer of Seneca was granted we do not know; but, as we do not again hear of Marcus, it is probable that he died before his father, and that the line of Seneca, like that of so many great men, became extinct in the second generation.
Frederic William Farrar
The trappings of a religious cult tend to fall into candlelit ceremonies and robes and group chanting and singing and prayer.
I lived in Saudi Arabia in the late 1970s. It was, for a Westerner, pretty idyllic. There were the religious police; there were the rules; there were the prayer times. But it was as if we were existing in two separate universes. The Westerners were just allowed to get on with their way of life.
I often write about nonreligious people, and I try to find situations where their sense of humanity is restored or discovered. I think you can be a good person in many ways. And I think you often have to be careful that prayer can seem superficial, because it's a very complicated thing to love your neighbor as yourself.
If a prayer is the way we talk to God, if a million people pray, that's got to be one big message.
Prayer is not so much the means whereby God's will is bent to man's desires, as it is that whereby man's will is bent to God's desires.
There's something about the idea of writing, and thinking about writing as a form of prayer - the way as a writer you call out into the world and throw your words into the world. You're not praying to a god, but you're almost conjuring a reader to arrive. That's what books do: they're an invitation to readers.
He knows the tax code as thoroughly as the pope knows the Lord's Prayer.
I say a little prayer every time I see a race. I say a little prayer that the riders and the horses will be okay.
My little secret before I do every scene is I say a short little prayer.
The soul is a muscle, and it needs to be exercised a little every day. Say a morning prayer just to say something.
Our real work is prayer. What good is the cold iron of our frantic little efforts unless first we heat it in the furnace of our prayer? Only heat will diffuse heat.
When you're starting out as an actor, you keep raising the stakes. First, you just want to be a character who comes on stage and gets a laugh or two and exits. Just five minutes on a stage, not even Broadway. But every time you say your little prayer at night, you place more demands.
Inaugurals conventionally start with a history lesson and finish with a prayer.
Prayer, among sane people, has never superseded practical efforts to secure the desired end.
C. S. Lewis
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leonardo da Vinci
