The 04/17/13 Joy Jar

16 Apr

 

Every Tuesday moi goes to a prayer group which meets at 6:30 a.m. She has been going for several weeks. Maybe she hasn’t gotten better, but she hasn’t gotten worse and that is a good think. It is good to be part of a community and to know the healing power of prayer. Today’s deposit into the ‘Joy Jar’ is the healing power of prayer.

Wherever pragmatism exits in the church, there is always a corresponding de-emphasis on Christ’s sufficiency, God’s sovereignty, biblical integrity, the power of prayer, and Spirit-led ministries. The result is a man-centered ministry that attempts to accomplish divine purposes by superficial programs and human methodology rather than by the Word or the power of the Spirit.

John MacArthur

I pray on the principle that wine knocks the cork out of a bottle.  There is an inward fermentation, and there must be a vent.

Henry Ward Beecher

God punishes us mildly by ignoring our prayers and severely by answering them.

Richard J. Needham

When we pray to God we must be seeking nothing – nothing.

Saint Francis of Assisi

“Give us this day our daily bread” is probably the most perfectly constructed and useful sentence ever set down in the English language.

P.J. Wingate

Prayer does not change God, but it changes him who prays.

Søren Kierkegaard

No one is a firmer believer in the power of prayer than the devil; not that he practices it, but he suffers from it. 

Guy H. King

Trouble and perplexity drive me to prayer and prayer drives away perplexity and trouble.

Philip Melanchthen

Don’t pray when it rains if you don’t pray when the sun shines.

Satchel Paige, 1974
