“For prayer is nothing else than being on terms of friendship with God.”

Saint Teresa of Avila

“We tend to use prayer as a last resort, but God wants it to be our first line of defense. We pray when there’s nothing else we can do, but God wants us to pray before we do anything at all.

Oswald Chambers

Quotes about God Being in Control

“I don’t know what the future holds, but I do know who holds my future.”

Worrisome thoughts reproduce faster than rabbits, so one of the most powerful ways to stop the spiral of worry is simply to disclose my worry to a friend… The simple act of reassurance from another human being [becomes] a tool of the Spirit to cast out fear — because peace and fear are both contagious.”

John Ortberg
christian quotes Lusko

Levi Lusko

“Nothing about my birth – or yours – was random or accidental. I was born for this time – and so were you. We were each chosen for a particular, cosmically important task that can be done by no one else.”

Mary Manin Morrissey

“We should always look upon ourselves as God’s servants, placed in God’s world, to do his work; and accordingly labour faithfully for him; not with a design to grow rich and great, but to glorify God, and do all the good we possibly can.”

David Brainerd

“It would seem that Our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased.” 

C.S. Lewis

Be a person in whom they can have faith. When you are old, nothing else you’ve done will have mattered as much.” 

Lisa Wingate
christian quotes Keillor

“Anyone who thinks sitting in church can make you a Christian must also think that sitting in a garage can make you a car.” 

Garrison Keillor

“To err is human, to forgive, divine.” 

Alexander Pope

“God can take what Satan meant for shame and use it for His glory. Just when we think we’ve messed up so badly that our lives are nothing but heaps of ashes, God pours His living water over us and mixes the ashes into clay. He then takes this clay and molds it into a vessel of beauty. After He fills us with His overflowing love, He can use us to pour His love into the hurting lives of others.” 

Lysa TerKeurst

“We’re going to have to let truth scream louder to our souls than the lies that have infected us.”
