Prayer

Don't pray for lighter burdens, but for stronger backs.

There is a vast difference between saying prayers and praying.

Pray as though everything depended on God. Work as though everything depended on you.

Courage is fear that has said its prayers.

Pray, and let God worry. - Martin Luther

Most people do not pray; they only beg.

The greatest prayer is patience.

Prayer is as natural an expression of faith as breathing is of life.

All prayers are answered if we are willing to admit that sometimes the answer is "no".

Many people pray as if God were a big aspirin pill; they come only when they hurt.

I have had prayers answered - most strangely so sometimes - but I think our heavenly Father's loving-kindness has been even more evident in what He has refused me. - Lewis Carroll

Do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men! Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers. Pray for power equal to your tasks.

As long as there are tests, there will be prayer in schools.
