Prayer Encouragement

"Pray, and let God worry." - Martin Luther

"When I pray, coincidences happen, and when I don't pray, they don't." - William Temple

"Prayer is to religion what original research is to science." -- P.T. Forsyth

Teach me to feel that thou are always nigh;
Teach me the struggles of the soul to bear.
To check the rising doubt, the rebel sigh;
Teach me the patience of unanswered prayer.
-"Spirit of God,"19th century hymn, George Croly, 1854, verse 4.

"To clasp the hands in prayer is the beginning of an uprising against the disorder of the world."
--Karl Barth
