Quotes about Prayer

The point of prayer is not to get answers from God; the goal of prayer is perfect and complete oneness with God. ~Oswald Chambers

Do not use the excuse of prayer to cover up what you know you ought to do. ~Oswald Chambers

One day…we shall gratefully see that God’s great refusals were sometimes the truest answers to our prayers.    ~P.T. Forsythe

    Thank you, Patti, for those great quotes. I remember one day at work I saw someone who could have used a kind word, but instead of offering one, I prayed for God to bless her. As I think back I used the excuse of prayer to cover up what I very easily could have done–sincerely compliment her or encourage her or make her laugh. Prayer is never wrong but for me, not doing what I was able and should do was wrong. Thanks for bringing Oswald’s quote to our attention!
