No common thing...

I have updated some things on the Prayer page. And here are some quotes on prayer to provide some motivation.

"A man is powerful on his knees."
~Corrie Ten Boon~

"Prayer is not conquering God's reluctance,
but taking hold of God's willingness."
~Phillips Brooks~

"Do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men.
Do not pray for tasks commensurate with your strength.
Pray for strength commensurate with your tasks."
~Phillips Brooks~

"Prayer crowns God with the honor and glory due to His name, and God crowns prayer with assurance and comfort. The most praying souls are the most assured souls.
~Thomas B. Brooks~

"In prayer, it is better to have heart without words, than words without heart. Prayer will make a man cease from sin, or sin entice a man to cease from prayer. The spirit of prayer is more precious than treasures of gold and silver. Pray often, for prayer is a shield to the soul, a sacrifice to God, and a scourge for Satan."
~ John Bunyan~

"Prayer does not equip us for the greater work,
Prayer is the greater work."
~ Oswald Chambers~

"Persons never need hesitate, because of their past sins, to approach God with the fullest confidence. If they now repent, and are conscious of fully and honestly returning to God with all their heart, they have no reason to fear being repulsed from the footstool of mercy."
~Oswald Chambers~

"When we become too glib in prayer
we are most surely talking to ourselves."
~ A.W. Tozer~

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to proper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you."
~Jeremiah 29:11-12~

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
~Romans 12:12~
