Prayer is the key. . . .

10 Quotations about Prayer:

“I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go. My own wisdom and that of all about me seemed insufficient for that day.” – Abraham Lincoln; Lincoln Observed: The Civil War Dispatches of Noah Brooks

“His invitation, “Ask, and ye shall receive” (3 Nephi 27:29, Book of Mormon) does not assure that you will get what you want. It does guarantee that, if worthy, you will get what you need, as judged by a Father that loves you perfectly, who wants your eternal happiness even more than do you.” Richard G. Scott – Trust in the Lord – Ensign November 1995

“I don’t believe you can pray in faith except for those things that are according to His will.” John H. Groberg

“One can pray and yet not really pray. Prayers can be routinized and become very superficial. When this happens, there is very little communication and very little growth. Yet, given the times in which we live, improving our prayers should be one of our deepest desires if we are genuinely serious about growing spiritually.” Neal A. Maxwell

“Praying is probably the most important thing you will do on any day.” H. Burke Peterson

“I have so much to do today that I had better spend another hour on my knees.” Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Prayer is not a substitute for work; it is a sometimes desperate effort to work further and to be efficient beyond the range of one’s powers. It is not the lazy who are most inclined to prayer; those pray most who care most, and who, having worked hard, find it intolerable to be defeated.”– George Santayana; The Missionary’s Little Quote Book

“Prayer is not asking. It is a longing of the soul. It is daily admission of one’s weakness. . . . It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without a heart.” – Mahatma Gandhi; The Missionary’s Little Quote Book

“Prayer is not asking. Prayer is putting oneself in the hands of God, at his disposition, and listening to his voice in the depths of our hearts.” – Mother Teresa; The Missionary’s Little Quote Book

“A man prayed, and at first he thought that prayer was talking. But he became more and more quiet until in the end he realized that prayer is listening.” – Soren Kierkegaard
