|A Prayer Diary||
Give me a stout heart to bear my own burdens. Give me a willing heart to bear the burdens of others. Give me a believing heart to cast all burdens upon Thee.
If we are to be always available not only physically, but by empathy, sympathy, friendship, understanding…we need silence.
Catherine de Hueck Doherty
Now if God has left some things contingent on man’s thinking and working why may he not have left some things contingent on man’s praying?
Harry Emerson Fosdick
Faith reaches the intellect not simply through the senses but in a light directly infused by God.
To praise is to feel God’s concern; to petition is to let Him feel our concern.
Abraham Joshua Heschel
Prayer is a disciplined dedication to paying attention.
