Prayer, our private, personal time with God.
Today I'm sharing some great scriptures and quotes on prayer.  It is a wonderful gift that God has given us, the blessing of coming before Him with our burdens, our Thank You's, our request, and our repentance ~ He hears each and every word.
*A few books on prayer.*
The Lord is far from the wicked, but he hears the prayer of the righteous.
Proverbs 15:29
Is prayer your steering wheel or your spare tire?
Corrie Ten Boom
There is nothing that makes us love a man so much as praying for him.
William Law
The greatest tragedy of life is not unanswered prayer, but unoffered prayer.
F.B. Meyer
*This plaque belonged to my son-in-love's Mother.  I'm so blessed to now have it in my home.  A constant reminder of a great lady.*
God waits for you to communicate with Him. You have instant, direct access to God. God loves mankind so much, and in a very special sense His children, that He has made Himself available to you at all times.
Wesley L. Duewel
When the devil sees a man or woman who really believes in prayer, who knows how to pray, and who really does pray, and, above all, when he sees a whole church on its face before God in prayer, he trembles as much as he ever did, for he knows that his day in that church or community is at an end.
R.A. Torrey
The best and sweetest flowers of paradise God gives to His people when they are upon their knees. Prayer is the gate of heaven.
Thomas Brooks
*I love this little prayer cross, a gift from a dear friend.  Thank You Valerie!*
O, let the place of secret prayer become to me the most beloved spot on earth.
Andrew Murray
Prayer is the link that connects us with God.
A.B. Simpson
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
*The earthly bodies of my Mom & Dad rest in the Garden of Prayer.  Their souls are with the Lord.*
Prayer is the nearest approach to God and the highest enjoyment of Him that we are capable of in this life.
William Law
 Prayer is not a hard requirement – it is the natural duty of a creature to its creator, the simplest homage that human need can pay to divine liberality.
Charles Spurgeon
Prayer delights God’s ear; it melts His heart; and opens His hand. God cannot deny a praying soul.
Thomas Watson

*My GLOW (God Loves Older Women) prayer journal.  A beautiful group of women that meet once a week for fellowship and God's love.* 
Prayer should be the key of the day and the lock of the night.
George Herbert
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
Philippians 4:6

Fervent prayers produce phenomenal results.
Woodrow Kroll

Time spent in prayer is never wasted.
Francis Fenelon

 Until Next Time
Bow your head and say your prayers
Cause Jesus might come tonight!
