Experiencing God

“All of the troubles of life come upon us because we refuse to sit quietly for a while each day in our rooms”–Mathematical and Spiritual Genius Blaise Pascal.

“Prayer is the way the life of God is nourished. We look upon prayer as a means of getting things for ourselves; the Bible’s idea of prayer is that we may get to know God Himself”–Oswald Chambers.

“He who prays without fervency does not pray at all. We cannot commune with God, who is a consuming fire, if there is no fire in our prayers”–Charles Spurgeon.

“Ask, and you will receive. Search, and you will find. Knock,  and the door will be opened for you. Everyone who asks will receive. Everyone who searches will find. And the door will be opened to him  who knocks”–Matthew 7:7-8, CEV

“The Lord hasn’t lost his powerful strength; he can still hear and answer prayers. Your sins are the roadblock between you and your God. That’s why he doesn’t answer your prayers or let you see his face”–Isaiah 59:1-2, CEV.

    Ah, Pascal! I still use the “Pascal Wager” more than any other tool when dealing with a so-called atheist or, as is far more likely, an agnostic. Great quote.
