A Quote by Saint Ephraim the Syrain on god, christianity, prayer, spirituality, wisdom, humility, patience, love, change, and growth

O Lord and Master of my life, take from me the spirit of sloth, meddling, lust of power, and idle talk.  But give rather the spirit of chastity, humility, patience and love to Thy servant.  Yea, O Lord and King, grant me to see my own sins and not to judge my brother; for Thou art blessed unto ages of ages.  Amen.

A Quote by unknown on ludo, love, life, fight, and prayer

There’s a time to pray,

and there’s a time to fight.

Anything can be a weapon,

if you’re holding it right.
Defend what is yours.

They will not take our souls.

It’s time now to rise,

and fight!

A Quote by Micheal Teal on prayer, journey, wellness, bliss, beauty, celebration, love, and angels

 Journey toward wellness, create positive ideas, live a spiritual life and your loving guardian angels will guide you to a place of beauty and bliss. If we listen to the divine messages of our souls we can attain true freedom and happiness. Life is a participatory prayer and by infusing joy and purpose into our thoughts and dreams we  initiate a celebration of love and light. Let love be your prayer.

A Quote by Henry Corbin on prayer, heart, creative imagination, himma, creation, and vision

"Prayer is the highest form, the supreme act of the Creative Imagination. ... For prayer is not a request for something: it is the expression of a mode of being, a means of existing and of causing to exist, ... The organ of Prayer is the heart, the psychospiritual organ, with its concentration of energy, its himma. ... Prayer is a "creator" of vision, ... ."

A Quote by St. Innocent of Alaska on god, spirituality, christianity, violence, prayer, awakening, elightenment, light, and love

Do not be careless.  Pray as much as you can - more frequently and more fervantly.  Prod yourself - force yourself to do so, for the Kingdom of God is taken by force.  You will never attain it without forcing yourself.

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on prayer, protection, doubt, decision, action, dreams, life, and enthusiasm

Lord, protect our doubts, because Doubt is a way of praying. It is Doubt that makes us grow because it forces us to look fearlessly at the many answers that exist to one question.And in order for this to be possible...

Lord, protect our decisions, because Decisions is a way of praying. Give us the courage, after our doubts, to be able to choose between one road and another. May our YES always be a YES, and our NO always be a NO. Once we have chosen our road, may we never look back nor allow our soul to be eaten away by remorse. And in order for this to be possible...

Lord, protect our actions, because Action is a way of praying. May our daily bread be the result of the very best that we carry within us. May we, through work and Action, share a little of the love we receive. And in order for this to be possible...

Lord, protect our dreams, because to Dream is a way of praying. Make sure that, regardless of our age or our circumstances, we are capable of keeping alight in our heart the sacred flame of hope and perserverance. And in order for this to be possible...

Lord, protect our enthusiasm, because Enthusiasm is a way of praying. It is what binds us to the Heaven and to Earth, to grown-ups, and to children; it is what tells us that our desires are important and deserve our best efforts. It is Enthusiasm that reaffirms to us that everything is possible, as long as we are totally committed to what we are doing.And in order for this to be possible...

Lord, protect our us, because Life is the only way we have of making manifest Your miracle. May the earth continue to transform seeds into wheat, may we continue to transmute wheat into bread. And this is only possible if we have Love; therefore, do not leave us in solitude. Always give us Your company, and the company of men and women who have doubts, who act and dream and feel enthusiasm, and who live each day as if it were totally dedicated to Your glory.

Amen

A Quote by St. Ignatius Brianchaninov on god, christianity, spirituality, prayer, faith, belief, peace, joy, love, and hope

"Prayer is all-powerful on account of the all-powerful God Who acts in it.  It is the sword of the Spirit ,which is the Word of God.  Prayer by its nature is communion and union of man with God; by its action it is the reconciliation of man with God, the mother and daughter of tears, a bridge for crossing temptations, a wall of protection from afflictions, a crushing of conflicts, boundless activity, the spring of virtues, the source of spiritual gifts, invisible progress, food of the soul, the enlightening of the mind, an axe for despair, a demonstration of hope, release from sorrow, the wealth of monks."

A Quote by Franz Kafka on prayer, relationship, and strength

The relationship to one's fellow man is the relationship of prayer, the relationship to oneself is the relationship of striving; it is from prayer that one draws the strength for one's striving.
