Contempative Prayer quotes by Ray Simpson

Contempative Prayer quotes by Ann H. Gabhart
#5. She remembered asking Grandma Howard once the best time to pray. Her grandmother had said, "There's no right or wrong time. Anytime can be the best time. Or all the time. Me, I'm partial to walking prayers."
"Walking prayers?" That had been a puzzle to Fran.
"Those a people can say while she's busy doing what has to be done. Like when I'm walking to the barn or the garden. Grabbing minutes with the Lord. His children don't have to set up appointments for him to pay attention. He's always ready to bend down his ear to us. #Quote by Ann H. Gabhart
Contempative Prayer quotes by Pat Conroy
#6. The world of literature has everything in it, and it refuses to leave anything out. I have read like a man on fire my whole life because the genius of English teachers touched me with the dazzling beauty of language. Because of them I rode with Don Quixote and danced with Anna Karenina at a ball in St. Petersburg and lassoed a steer in Lonesome Dove and had nightmares about slavery in Beloved and walked the streets of Dublin in Ulysses and made up a hundred stories in The Arabian Nights and saw my mother killed by a baseball in A Prayer for Owen Meany. I've been in ten thousand cities and have introduced myself to a hundred thousand strangers in my exuberant reading career #Quote by Pat Conroy
Contempative Prayer quotes by Bill Johnson
#7. The biggest enemy to prayer is praying for something you already have. #Quote by Bill Johnson

Contempative Prayer quotes by Pseudo-Dionysius The Areopagite
#10. TRIAD supernal, both super-God and super-good, Guardian of the Theosophy of Christian men, direct us aright to the super-unknown and super-brilliant and highest summit of the mystic Oracles, where the simple and absolute a!nd changeless mysteries of theology lie hidden within the super-luminous gloom of the silence, revealing hidden things, which in its deepest darkness shines above the most super-brilliant, and in the altogether impalpable and invisible, fills to overflowing the eyeless minds with glories of surpassing beauty. This then be my prayer; but thou, O dear Timothy, by thy persistent commerce with the mystic visions, leave behind both sensible perceptions and intellectual efforts, and all objects of sense and intelligence, and all things not being and being, and be raised aloft unknowingly to the union, as far' as attainable, with Him Who is above every essence and knowledge. For by the resistless and absolute ecstasy in all purity, from thyself and all, thou wilt be carried on high, to the superessential ray of the Divine darkness, when thou hast cast away all, and become free from all. #Quote by Pseudo-Dionysius The Areopagite
Contempative Prayer quotes by Henri J.M. Nouwen
#11. When we say to people, 'I will pray for you,' we make a very important commitment. The sad thing is that this remark often remains nothing but a well-meant expression of concern. But when we learn to descend with our mind into our heart, then all those who have become part of our lives are led into the healing presence of God and touched by him in the center of our being. We are speaking here about a mystery for which words are inadequate. It is the mystery that the heart, which is the center of our being, is transformed by God into his own heart, a heart large enough to embrace the entire universe. Through prayer we can carry in our heart all human pain and sorrow, all conflicts and agonies, all torture and war, all hunger, loneliness, and misery, not because of some great psychological or emotional capacity, but because God's heart has become one with ours. #Quote by Henri J.M. Nouwen
Contempative Prayer quotes by Pedro Okoro
#12. In spiritual warfare, faith is the currency that releases your prayer. It is the instrument (or weapon, if you like) that activates and sets loose the answers to your prayers. #Quote by Pedro Okoro
Contempative Prayer quotes by Robert Bakke
#13. God would never give you a burning desire for something without giving you the skills to achieve it! That would be setting you up to fail, and God isn't in that business. God-given visions are designed to point you in the direction of God's purpose for your life. Once you've accepted this and have aligned your goals with God's plan for your life, a synergy between you and God is created, and in the world of prayer, this becomes extremely powerful! #Quote by Robert Bakke
Contempative Prayer quotes by Robin Sacredfire
#14. God has more powerful aways to show Himself than any human postulate.
And yet, a postulate is the highest form of prayer. #Quote by Robin Sacredfire
Contempative Prayer quotes by Tayari Jones
#15. Mama, I said, and then the crying came. I had not cried since I was sentenced and I had humiliated myself before a judge who didn't care. On that horrible day, my snotty sobbing had merged with Celestial and Olive's morning accompaniment. Now I suffered a cappella; the weeping burned my throat like when you vomit strong liquor. That one word, Mama, was my only prayer as I phrased on the ground like I was feeling the Holy Ghost, only what I was going through wasn't rapture. I spasmed on that cold black earth in pain, physical pain. My joints hurt; I experienced what felt like a baton against the back of my head. It was like I relived every injury of my life.. The pain went on until it didn't. and I say up, dirty and spent. #Quote by Tayari Jones
Contempative Prayer quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#16. May your heart be joyful to overcome painful situation. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Contempative Prayer quotes by Stormie O'martian
#17. Thank You, Lord, that I am a child of Yours, set apart for Your glory, and that You hear my prayers. When I pray, help me to have the peace of knowing You have heard my prayer and will answer in Your way and in Your perfect timing. Show me if there is ever anything in my life that would become a barrier between me and You so that my prayers would go unanswered. #Quote by Stormie O'martian

All the strife and hatred and suffering and death that twist and scar this world will vanish, and the Lord's Prayer will be fulfilled: God's will will be done on earth as it is in heaven. #Quote by Billy Graham

Contempative Prayer quotes by Gabrielle
#24. To sweat is to pray, to make an offering of your innermost self. Sweat is holy water, prayer beads, pearls of liquid that release your past. Sweat is an ancient and universal form of self healing, whether done in the gym, the sauna, or the sweat lodge. I do it on the dance floor. The more you dance, the more you sweat. The more you sweat, the more you pray. The more you pray, the closer you come to ecstasy. #Quote by Gabrielle
Contempative Prayer quotes by Ole Hallesby
#25. Prayer can assume very different forms, from quiet, blessed contemplation of God, in which eye meets eye in restful meditation, to deep sighs or sudden exclamations of wonder, joy, gratitude or adoration. #Quote by Ole Hallesby
Contempative Prayer quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#26. Christians can never sin cheaply; they pay a heavy price for iniquity. Transgression destroys peace of mind, obscures fellowship with Jesus, hinders prayer, brings darkness over the soul; therefore be not the serf and bondman of sin. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Contempative Prayer quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#27. The streaming wounds of Jesus are the sure guarantees for answered prayer. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Contempative Prayer quotes by Lorenz Hart
#28. Once I laughed when, I heard you saying
that I'd be playing, solitaire,
uneasy in my, easy chair.
It never entered my mind.

Once you told me, I was mistaken,
that I'd awaken, with the sun
and order orange juice for one.
It never entered my mind.

You have what I lack myself
and now I even have to scratch my back myself.

Once you warned me that if you scorned me
I'd sing the maiden's prayer again
and wish that you were there again
to get into my hair again.
It never entered my mind.
#Quote by Lorenz Hart

Contempative Prayer quotes by Benjamin Stillingfleet
#31. Prayer among men is supposed a means to change the person to whom we pray; but prayer to God doth not change him, but fits us to receive the things prayed for. #Quote by Benjamin Stillingfleet
Contempative Prayer quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#32. Prayer is humbly longing to know the Father's will. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Contempative Prayer quotes by Maya Angelou
#33. Let gratitude be the pillow upon which you kneel to say your nightly prayer. And let faith be the bridge you build to overcome evil and welcome good. #Quote by Maya Angelou
Contempative Prayer quotes by Hermann Hesse
#34. Would you actually believe that you had committed your foolish acts in order to spare your son from committing them too? And could you in any way protect your son from Sansara? How could you? By means of teachings, prayer, admonition? My dear, have you entirely forgotten that story, that story containing so many lessons, that story about Siddhartha, a Brahman's son, which you once told me here on this very spot? Who has kept the Samana Siddhartha safe from Sansara, from sin, from greed, from foolishness? Were his father's religious devotion, his teachers warnings, his own knowledge, his own search able to keep him safe? Which father, which teacher had been able to protect him from living his life for himself, from soiling himself with life, from burdening himself with guilt, from drinking the bitter drink for himself, from finding his path for himself? Would you think, my dear, anybody might perhaps be spared from taking this path? That perhaps your little son would be spared, because you love him, because you would like to keep him from suffering and pain and disappointment? But even if you would die ten times for him, you would not be able to take the slightest part of his destiny upon yourself. #Quote by Hermann Hesse
Contempative Prayer quotes by Raphael Zernoff
#35. Prayers likewise your positive thoughts can be based on gratitude and love. #Quote by Raphael Zernoff
Contempative Prayer quotes by Catherine Bird
#36. I pray that you uncover the unique thing that makes your prayers the cornerstone of your relationship with God. #Quote by Catherine Bird
Contempative Prayer quotes by Paul Miller
#37. God also cheers when we come to him with our wobbling, unsteady prayers. Jesus does not say, Come to me, all you who have learned how to concentrate in prayer, whose minds no longer wander, and I will give you rest. #Quote by Paul Miller
