Corrie ten Boom (Dutch-born writer)

Any concern too small to be turned into a prayer is too small to be made into a burden.

Max Lucado (American-born pastor and author)

Our prayers may be awkward.  Our attempts may be feeble.  But since the power of prayer is in the one who hears it and not in the one who says it, our prayers do make a difference.

From 1 John 5:14:  “And this is the boldness we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.”

From Psalm 86:11:  “Teach me your way, O Lord, that I may walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart to revere your name.”

There is no pit so deep that God’s love is not deeper still.

From Psalm 100:4-5:  “Enter His gates with thanksgiving, and His courts with praise.  Give thanks to Him, bless His name.  For the Lord is good; His steadfast love endures forever, and His faithfulness to all generations.”

Thank God for all things.

From Psalm 65:1-4:  “Praise is due to you, O God, in Zion; and to you shall vows be performed, O you who answer prayer!  To you all flesh shall come.  When deeds of iniquity overwhelm us, you forgive our transgressions.  Happy are those whom you choose and bring near to live in your courts.  We shall be satisfied with the goodness of your house, your holy temple.

From Isaiah 9:6:  “For a child has been born for us, a Son given to us; authority rests upon His shoulders; and He is named Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”

Be filled with the Holy Spirit; join a church where the members believe the Bible and know the Lord; seek the fellowship of other Christians; learn and be nourished by God’s Word and His many promises.  Conversion is not the end of your journey–it is only the beginning.
