"And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints." Ephesians 6: 18 NIV
Praying for others strengthens both the intercessor and the object of the prayers. Ask God to make you a more faithful intercessor." author unknown.
"There is a strength that comes through prayer, a confidence, a power, a quite, deep, unflinching faith to meet the trying hour. There is a peace that comes through prayer, a calm serenity to face whatever life may hold with grace and dignity. There is a joy that comes through prayer, a gladness of the soul, a glorious sense of having been refreshed, renewed, made whole." author unknown.
"Delayed answers to prayers are not refusals. Many prayers are received and recorded, yet underneath are the words, 'My time has not yet come.' God has a fixed time and an ordained purpose, and He who controls the limits of our lives also determines the time of our deliverance." author unknown.
"The purpose of prayer is not to get what we want, but to become what God wants." "Our Daily
Bread. "
"Grief is not a choice, but healing is." Anonymous
"Grief is like a long winding valley where any bend may reveal a totally new landscape." C.S. Lewis
"God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our conscience, but shouts in our pain; it is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world." C.S. Lewis
