There are three answers to prayer: yes, no, and wait awhile. It must be recognized that no is an answer.

There are two main pitfalls on the road to mastery of the art of prayer. If a person gets what he asks for, his humility is in danger. If he fails to get what he asks for, he is apt to lose confidence.

There come times when I have nothing more to tell God. If I were to continue to pray in words, I would have to repeat what I have already said. At such times it is wonderful to say to God, "May I be in Thy presence, Lord? I have nothing more to say to Thee, but I do love to be in Thy presence."

They who have steeped their soul in prayer can every anguish calmly bear.

This is what I found out about religion: It gives you courage to make decisions you must make in a crisis, and then the confidence to leave the result to a Higher Power. Only by trust in God can a man carrying responsibility find repose.

Those who always pray are necessary to those who never pray.

Those who trade with heaven by prayer grow rich by quick returns.

Thou who has given so much to me, give one thing more: a grateful heart.

Though I am weak, yet God, when prayed, Cannot withhold his conquering aid.

Though smooth be the heartless prayer, no ear in heaven will mind it; And the finest phrase falls dead, if there is no feeling behind it.

Though we cannot by our prayers give God any information, yet we must by our prayers give him honor.

Time spent in prayer is never wasted.

To a certain extent, God gives to the prayerful control of Himself, and becomes their willing agent; and when the time comes when all mysteries are solved, and the record of all lives is truthfully revealed, it will probably be seen that not those who astonished the world with their own powers, but those who quietly, through prayer, used God's power, were the ones who made the world move forward.
