The Holy Spirit and Prayer

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. . . . If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will you Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!”–Matthew 7:7-11.

“When Robert Louis Stevenson was four years old he announced a great discovery. “Mamma,” he said, “you cannot be good without praying.” “How do you know?” his mother asked. “Because,” said he, “I have tried”–Parker and St. Johns, Prayer Can Change Your Life.

If you use prayer “as a spare tire, only when an emergency arises, [you] are very apt to be disappointed in its results”–Parker and St. Johns.

“You can’t determine the wind of God (the moving of the Holy Spirit) but you can set your sails to be ready for when He moves”–Sammy Tippit.

“Don’t tell God how big your storms are; tell your storms how big your God is.”

“If you want to move forward, you have to look back and remember how God has led you”–Jerry Jenkins.
