Prayer is the longing of the soul



Prayer is not asking. It is a longing of the soul. 
It is daily admission of one's weakness. 
It is better in prayer to have a heart 
without words than words without a heart.
Mahatma Gandhi

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

Prayer is not overcoming God's reluctance, 
but laying hold of His willingness.
Martin Luther

Prayer is the acid test of devotion.
Samuel Chadwick
 

Prayer is the exercise of drawing on the grace of God.
Oswald Chambers

Prayer is the key of the morning and the bolt of the evening.
Mahatma Gandhi

Prayer is the root, the fountain, 
the mother of a thousand blessings.
Chrysostom

Prayer is the secret of power.
Evan Roberts

Prayer is translation. 
A man translates himself into a child 
asking for all there is in a language he has barely mastered.
Leonard Cohen

Prayer is where the action is.
John Wesley


There is a place where thou canst touch the eyes
Of blinded men to instant, perfect sight;
There is a place where thou canst say, "Arise"
To dying captives, bound in chains of night;
There is a place where thou canst reach the store
Of hoarded gold and free it for the Lord;
There is a place–upon some distant shore–
Where thou canst send the worker and the Word.
Where is that secret place–dost thou ask, "Where?"
O soul, it is the secret place of prayer!
Alfred Lord Tennyson
