#1. When i was a little boy i had a red bike, every night when I went to bed I begged God to give my bike wings so that in the morning, I could fly away. Every morning I'd crawl out of bed and run straight to the garage to see if he answered my prayers. I still have the bike. It's mire rusted than red now. But I still check. Everyday. - Author: Tarryn Fisher

#4. A Creed For Those Who Have Suffered

I asked God for strength, that I might achieve.
I was made weak, that I might learn humbly to obey ...
I asked for health, that I might do great things.
I was given infirmity, that I might do better things ...
I asked for riches, that I might be happy.
I was given poverty, that I might be wise ...
I asked for power, that I might have the praise of men.
I was given weakness, that I might feel the need of God ...
I asked for all things, that I might enjoy life.
I was given life, that I might enjoy all things ...
I got nothing I asked for - but everything I had hoped for. Almost despite myself, my unspoken prayers were answered.
I am, among men, most richly blessed! - Author: Roy Campanella

Hales

Christian Answered Prayers quotes by Benjamin Franklin

#9. Sarah and Michael shared many happy years together. On their seventh anniversary, their prayers were answered with the birth of a son, Stephen. Stephen was followed by Luke, Lydia, and Esther. - Author: Francine Rivers
Christian Answered Prayers quotes by Francine Rivers
#10. After Sara's accident, so many well-intentioned people had offered her words of hope - that God would heal her, that she would see again - as if that was a given. It was the same hope people had offered Marilyn all those years ago. Story upon story of women who had struggled through infertility and ended up with a child on the other side.
'God is good. It'll happen,' they had told her.
As if God's goodness depended upon whether or not He answered prayers the way people wanted Him to answer. The hard truth was the sometimes He didn't. He hadn't rescued Marilyn from her infertility, and He hadn't rescued Sara from her blindness. But that didn't negate His goodness. It just meant that He had different plans. - Author: Katie Ganshert
Christian Answered Prayers quotes by Katie Ganshert
#11. People who pray for miracles usually don't get miracles. But people who pray for courage, for strength to bear the unbearable, for the grace to remember what they have left instead of what they have lost, very often find their prayers answered. Their prayers help them tap hidden reserves of faith and courage that were not available to them before. - Author: Harold S. Kushner
Christian Answered Prayers quotes by Harold S. Kushner
#12. Prayer is not eloquence, but earnestness; not the definition of helplessness, but the feeling of it; not figures of speech, but earnestness of soul. - Author: Hannah More
Christian Answered Prayers quotes by Hannah More
#13. If your life is in disarray and you feel uncomfortable and unworthy to pray because you are not clean, don't worry. He already knows about all of that. He is waiting for you to kneel in humility and take the first few steps. Pray for strength. Pray for others to be led to support you and guide you and lift you. Pray that the love of the Savior will pour into your heart. Pray that the miracle of the Atonement will bring forgiveness because you are willing to change. I know that those prayers will be answered, for God loves you. His Son gave his life for you. I know they will help you. - Author: Richard G. Scott
Christian Answered Prayers quotes by Richard G. Scott
#14. Certainly the death of Christ has been understood as expiation for human sin through the whole length of church history, and I defer with all possible sincerity to the central tenets of the Christian tradition, but as for myself, I confess that I struggle to understand the phenomenon of ritual sacrifice, and the Crucifixion when explicated in its terms. The concept is so central to the tradition that I have no desire to take issue with it, and so difficult for me that I leave it for others to interpret. If it answered to a deep human need at other times, and it answers now to other spirits than mine, then it is a great kindness of God toward them, and a great proof of God's attentive grace toward his creatures. - Author: Marilynne Robinson
Christian Answered Prayers quotes by Marilynne Robinson
#15. The greatest patient is to wait for God to act. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Christian Answered Prayers quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#16. Think back. How many of your sweetest dreams, your greatest hopes, your most cherished desires have come true?

On the other hand, how much of what you didn't really care about wound up happening anyway?

What you have to understand is that it's the god of solitude who also happens to be in charge of denying us what we desperately want.

She does it because she believes the more we get what we desperately want, the more miserable we become, even more so than we already are.

As Truman Capote put it, "More tears are shed for answered prayers than unanswered ones."

So the god of solitude is only trying to help us not be miserable getting what we thought would make us happy.

Though once in a while she'll let it happen to teach us the secret of happiness is to be grateful for what we already have. Not constantly wanting, trying to get more.

The way to outsmart her, then, is not to care one way or the other.

That way, too, when you don't get what you want, you won't be disappointed because it won't really matter. - Author: Lionel Fisher
Christian Answered Prayers quotes by Lionel Fisher
#17. May God redeem mankind. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita

#18. All great dreamers have great faith. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita

#19. I have confidence that my prayers are answered because I sought God's will before I asked. - Author: Davin Whitehurst
Christian Answered Prayers quotes by Davin Whitehurst
#20. If I fuck you, you'll think all your prayers have been answered. I'll make you see god, Middleton. I'll make you think I am god."

Christian Answered Prayers quotes by Wayne Dyer
#23. With much prayer comes great grace from God. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Christian Answered Prayers quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#24. Prayer is not a discourse. It is a form of life, the life with God. That is why it is not confined to the moment of verbal statement. The latter (verbalization) can only be the secondary expression of the relationship with God, an overflow from the encounter between the living God and the living person. - Author: Jacques Ellul
Christian Answered Prayers quotes by Jacques Ellul
#25. You can avoid Jesus as Savior by keeping all the moral laws. If you do that, then you have "rights." God owes you answered prayers, and a good life, and a ticket to heaven when you die. You don't need a Savior who pardons you by free grace, for you are your own Savior. - Author: Timothy Keller
Christian Answered Prayers quotes by Timothy Keller
#26. What discord should we bring into the universe if our prayers were all answered! Then we should govern the world, and not God. And do you think we should govern it better? - Author: Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Christian Answered Prayers quotes by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
#27. It was in His parting sorrow
that Jesus asked His disciples to remember Him; and never was entreaty of affection answered so; for ever since has His name been breathed in morning and evening prayers that none can count, and has brought down some gift of sanctity and peace on the anguish of bereavement, and the remorse of sin. - Author: James Martineau
Christian Answered Prayers quotes by James Martineau
#28. The Lord God knows exact when to act. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Christian Answered Prayers quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#29. Some people just don't seem to realize, when they're moaning about not getting prayers answered, that no is the answer. - Author: Nelia Gardner White
Christian Answered Prayers quotes by Nelia Gardner White
#30. Prayers are answered in one of four ways," she said. "Yes. No. I have
something else in mind. And ... "
She paused long enough for my impatience to show. "And what's the
fourth answer?"
"Wait," she said. - Author: Megan McCafferty
Christian Answered Prayers quotes by Megan McCafferty
#31. Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers. - Author: Garth Brooks
Christian Answered Prayers quotes by Garth Brooks
#32. In a society so estranged from animals as ours, we often fail to credit them with any form of language. If we do, it comes under the heading of communication rather than speech. And yet, the great silence we have imposed on the rest of life contains innumerable forms of expression. Where does our own language come from but this unfathomed store that characterizes innumerable species?
We are now more than halfway removed from what the unwritten word meant to our ancestors, who believed in the original, primal word behind all manifestations of the spirit. You sang because you were answered. The answers come from life around you. Prayers, chants, and songs were also responses to the elements, to the wind, the sun and stars, the Great Mystery behind them. Life on earth springs from a collateral magic that we rarely consult. We avoid the unknown as if we were afraid that contact would lower our sense of self-esteem. - Author: John Hay
Christian Answered Prayers quotes by John Hay
#33. We hope to receive what we long for. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Christian Answered Prayers quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#34. With the fate of Roe v. Wade now hanging in the balance, I'm calling for a special 'pro-life tax.' If the fervent prayers of the religious right are answered and abortion is banned, let's take it a step further. All good Christians should legally be required to pony up; share the financial burden of raising an unwanted child. That's right: put your money where your Bible is. I'm not just talking about paying for food and shelter or even a college education. All those who advocate for driving a stake through the heart of a woman's right to choose must help bear the financial burden of that child's upbringing. They must be legally as well as morally bound to provide the child brought into this world at their insistence with decent clothes to wear; a toy to play with; a bicycle to ride -- even if they don't consider these things 'necessities.' Pro-lifers must be required to provide each child with all those things they would consider 'necessary' for their own children. Once the kid is out of the womb, don't wash your hands and declare 'Mission Accomplished!' It doesn't end there. If you insist that every pregnancy be carried to term, then you'd better be willing to pay the freight for the biological parents who can't afford to. And -- like the good Christians that you are -- should do so without complaint. - Author: Quentin R. Bufogle
Christian Answered Prayers quotes by Quentin R. Bufogle
#35. There is going to come a time when we have to accept who we are without the assistance of religion. That will be the dawn of true faith. We leave the big decisions to invisible consultants and pray we get the answers we are looking for. The late great George Carlin once said he gave up praying to God and started praying to Joe Pesci because his prayers to Joe Pesci were answered with as much accuracy and frequency as those to God. [ ... ] If we as people are still looking for answers, we should turn our eyes away from the heavens and look to each other. I know we do not play well together - hell, some of us do not even like being in the same room with each other - but the divine lies in all of us. We are miracles. We are "god." If we shared a little more, we would not be left feeling less. We hold the keys to our own destinies. It is time we started looking for the locks. - Author: Corey Taylor
Christian Answered Prayers quotes by Corey Taylor
#36. Hope is a gaze on a higher power to meet our every need. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Christian Answered Prayers quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#37. Prayer, the basic exercise of the spirit, must be actively practiced in our private lives. The neglected soul of the human being must be made strong enough to assert itself once more. For if the power of prayer is again released and used in the lives of common men and women; if the spirit declares its aims clearly and boldly, there is yet hope that our prayers for a better world will be answered. - Author: Alexis Carrel
Christian Answered Prayers quotes by Alexis Carrel
#38. Every question I'd ever had God answered and still continues to answer every one I have today. It's really amazing what God can do. - Author: Christian Hosoi
Christian Answered Prayers quotes by Christian Hosoi
#39. There is a mighty lot of difference between saying prayers and praying. - Author: John G. Lake
Christian Answered Prayers quotes by John G. Lake
#40. I went to the recreation room and knelt down in front of the same Nativity scene where I'd prayed to Baby Jesus to find my mother when I was a child. I looked at him lying there in his bed of hay and wondered why this scene never left me. Over the years, whenever I prayed, I prayed to Baby Jesus. He was the miracle baby who never grew up. I believed that he really listened to me and often answered me. As I knelt there I realized that Sister Silvestris was right all along. She told us every Christmas that whatever we asked of Baby Jesus he'd grant us. - Author: Maria Nhambu
Christian Answered Prayers quotes by Maria Nhambu
#41. The praying life is the abiding life. Many Christians hit a wall when they connect abiding with asking. They freeze, thinking, If I were abiding, then I would get my prayers answered. Abiding feels elusive, like a spiritual pipe dream. Abiding is anything but disconnected from life. It is the way life should be done, in partnership with God. - Author: Paul E. Miller
Christian Answered Prayers quotes by Paul E. Miller
#42. Daily communication with God must be desired and pursued above all other things. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Christian Answered Prayers quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#43. God can cure any illness. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Christian Answered Prayers quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#44. Live as if ye expected (your prayers) to be answered. - Author: Edgar Cayce
Christian Answered Prayers quotes by Edgar Cayce
#45. The secret of our lost mode of prayer is to shift our perspective of life by feeling that the miracle has already happened and our prayers have been answered. Now we have the opportunity to bring this wisdom into our lives as prayers of gratitude for what already exists, rather than asking for our prayers to be answered. - Author: Gregg Braden
Christian Answered Prayers quotes by Gregg Braden
#46. Many people are praying and their prayers go unanswered. Imagine if you decided to step in your role as a god and resolved to answer their prayers. How many prayers would be answered from now on? But no, you also keep your face hidden like other careless gods and keep your ears closed to their clamor. - Author: Bangambiki Habyarimana
Christian Answered Prayers quotes by Bangambiki Habyarimana
#47. Every perfect gift comes from the great God. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Christian Answered Prayers quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#48. Since the sum of her experience had told her that the majority of one's prayers to God were not answered, she prayed now directly to us, she called upon the Devil, she implored him. - Author: Norman Mailer
