Brother Lawrence Quote

You need not cry very loud; He is nearer to us than we think.

From James 1:5-6:  “ If any of you is lacking in wisdom, ask God, who gives to all generously and ungrudgingly, and it will be given you.  But ask in faith, never doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind.”

Brother Lawrence (1614-1691) lived in France where he served as a lay brother in a monastery in Paris.  He is best remembered for his intimate relationship with God.

  1. I often whisper my prayers as I go into tough situations, knowing God is hearing me. And when I had a stroke, I could not speak at all but I was praying in my heart and mind in the ambulance ride to the hospital. God is listening for our prayers and always hears them!
