A Quote by unknown on country, failure, god, magic, music, needs, prayer, and words

How many of us ever stop to think Of music as a wondrous magic link With God; taking sometimes the place of prayer, When words have failed us 'neath the weight of care' Music, that knows no country, race or creed; But gives to each according to his need.

A Quote by unknown on disobedience, good, motherhood, prayer, and yielding

Little George was very piously trained; but he had a strong will and disliked very much to yield. When he was disobedient his mother was accustomed to make him stand in a corner of the room for a while. One night, after he had been more than stubborn, he knelt to say his evening prayer, and made this petition: "Oh, Lord, bless Georgey and make him a good boy, and don't let him be naughty again, never - no never, 'cause you know, Lord, when he is naughty, he sticks to it!"

A Quote by Thomas S. Monson on family, happiness, joy, and prayer

Family prayer is the greatest deterrent to sin, and hence the most beneficent provider of joy and happiness. The old saying is yet true: 'The family that prays together stays together.'

Thomas S. Monson (1927 -)

A Quote by Sir William Davenant on blush, design, god, heaven, interest, losing, men, praise, prayer, rest, sacrifice, and world

Praise and Prayer PRAISE is devotion fit for mighty minds, The diff'ring world's agreeing sacrifice; Where Heaven divided faiths united finds: But Prayer in various discord upward flies. For Prayer the ocean is where diversely Men steer their course, each to a sev'ral coast; Where all our interests so discordant be That half beg winds by which the rest are lost. By Penitence when we ourselves forsake, 'Tis but in wise design on piteous Heaven; In Praise we nobly give what God may take, And are, without a beggar's blush, forgiven.

Sir William Davenant (1606 - 1668)
