A few thoughts on prayer

"You can do more than pray after you have prayed, but you cannot do more than pray until you have prayed." ~A.J. Gordon

"Falling asleep in prayer is no problem. You can rest in God's presence. Besides, next to the heart of God is a good place, a safe place, for sleeping." ~Richard J. Foster

"God's greatest concern is not the length of our prayers, nor the correctness of our language, but the attitude of our hearts." ~Leighton Ford

"As children hear their parents praying for wisdom and direction, they learn that parents can't fix everything. I believe God designed it this way. After all, if parents were perfect, children would never sense their need for God." ~Paul Meier
