I have been so focused on prayer the past few days. I decided to do a search and find some quotes on prayer. I thought I would share a few:

"Prayer lays hold of God's plan and becomes the link between His will and its accomplishment on earth. Amazing things happen, and we are given the privilege of being the channels of the Holy Spirit's prayer."
E.isabeth Elliot

"Groanings which cannot be uttered are often prayers which cannot be refused."

"Nothing tends more to cement the hearts of Christians than praying together. Never do they love one another so well as when they witness the outpouring of each other's hearts in prayer."
Charles Finney

"Prayer at its highest is a two-way conversation and for me the most important part is listening to God's replies."
Frank C. Laubach

"Prayer is not only asking, but an attitude of mind which produces the atmosphere in which asking is perfectly natural."
Oswald Chambers

" The greatest thing anyone can do for God and man is pray. It is not the only thing;but it is the chief thing. The great people of the earth today are the people who pray. I do not mean those who talk about prayer; nor those who say they believe in prayer; nor yet those who can explain about prayer; but I mean those people who take time to pray."
S. D. Gordon

"God's way of answering the Christian's prayer for more patience, experience, hope, and love often is to put him into the furnace of affliction."
Richard Cecil

"If the heart wanders or is distracted, bring it back to the point quite gently and replace it tenderly in its Master's presense. And even if you did nothing during the whole of your hour but bring your heart back and place it again in our Lord's presence, though it went away every time you brought it back, your hour will be very well employed."
St. Francis de Sales

"To have God speak to the heart is a majestic experience, an experience that people may miss if they monopolize the conversation and never pause to hear God's responses."
Charles Stanley

"God's voice is still and quiet and easily buried under an avalanche of clamour."
Charles Stanley

"Don't pray when you feel like it. Have an appointment with the Lord and keep it. A man is powerful on his knees."
Corrie ten Boom

"The one concern of the devil is to keep Christians from praying. He fears nothing from prayerless studies, prayerless work, and prayerless religion. He laughs at our toil, mocks at our widom, but trembles when we pray."
Samuel Chadwick.

I hope those bless you as they do me. Before I tuck things away for the day, there is a special prayer request I think we all need to know about. Kelli is very much in need of our prayers. Please visit her and let her know you are praying for her.

Thanks for your comment on my post. I think this post you wrote ties into it. Tonight I will pray for Nate and his family and I will listen for God's instruction. The listening I sometimes find hard since I am one of those people who thinks I know best at times.

I will now go to Kelli's blog an read about her need.

PS your son sounds awesome and is just the man I want mine to become. I would be so proud too. I read your posts about your family and they all sound like awesome people. I'm glad I am getting to know you.

Thank you for the support, L. Your prayers are coveted and your place in this touches me. Deeply. You need to know that fully.

Reading your blog has encouraged me to work on my prayer time, thank you. I will visit Kelli's blog. We tried to sell some property a few years back, I just knew it would sell, it didn't, it took several years but when it finally sold we received 5 times what we had paid for it. God knows!

Thanks for all these wonderful prayers Linda. I was just looking through my Grandma's bible and found a few of her favorite verses which I've been reading through.
I'll go see Kelli now

such wonderful quotes you've found!

recently I heard it said that if you approach prayer as a duty/chore, it will be just that. but if you approach it as a priveledge, it is just that as well.

Thank you for your post.

Thank you for sharing these, of course I am partial to Corrie ten Boom =) I did just purchase a "Prayer book" that has many different quotes.
