ACTS of Prayer ~
Adoration – Praise
Pray like Jesus ~
“Pray then like this:
Our Father in heaven
Hallowed be your name
Your kingdom come,
Your will be done,
On earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
And forgive us our debts.
As we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil. (Mathew 6: 9-13) ~Jesus
I was at His feet, He resided within but….he kept showing me His Vessels.
I saw more clearly than ever, that the first great and primary business to which I ought to attend every day was, to have my soul happy in the Lord. The first thing to be concerned about was not, how I might serve the Lord, how I might glorify the Lord; but how I might get my soul into a happy state, and how my inner man may be nourished…. I saw that the most important thing I had to do was to give myself to the reading of the Word of God and to mediation of it. ~ George Mueller of Bristol.

It is because of the hasty and superficial conversation with God that the sense of sin is so weak and that no motives have power to help you to hate and flee from sin as you should. ~ A.W. Tozer

Prayer – secret, fervent, believing prayer – lies at the root of all personal godliness. ~ Williams Carey
“Satan dreads nothing but prayer. His one concern is to keep the saints from praying. He fears nothing from prayerless studies, prayerless work, and prayerless religion. He laughs at our toil, he mocks our wisdom, but he trembles when we pray.” ~ Samuel Chadwick
The prayer that prevails is not the work of lips and fingertips. It is the cry of a broken heart and the travail of a stricken soul.” ~ Samuel Chadwick
How to listen to God: “We are either in the process of resisting God’s truth or in the process of being shaped and molded by his truth.” ~ Charles Stanley
Since God knows our future, our personalities, and our capacity to listen, He isn’t every going to say more to us than we can deal with at the moment. ~ Charles Stanley

I’m convinced that the man who has learned to meditate upon the Lord will be able to run on his feet and walk in his spirit. Although he may be hurried by his vocation, that’s not the issue. The issue is how fast his spirit is going. To slow it down takes a period of time. ~ Charles Stanley
The essence of meditation is a period of time set aside to contemplate the Lord, listen to Him, and allow Him to permeate our spirits. ~ Charles Stanley

Work as if you were to live a hundred years. Pray as if you were to die tomorrow. ~ Benjamin Franklin
