Prayer Without Faith Quotes By Fulton J. Sheen

No soul ever fell away from God without giving up prayer. Prayer is that which establishes contact with Divine Power and opens the invisible resources of heaven. However dark the way, when we pray, temptation can never master us. The first step downward in the average soul is the giving up of the practice of prayer, the breaking of the circuit with divinity, and the proclamation of one's owns self sufficiency. — Fulton J. Sheen

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By Barbara Brown Taylor

I discovered a version of the sinner's prayer that increased my faith far more than the one that I had said years earlier ... In this version, there were no formulas, no set phrases that promised us safe passage across the abyss. There was only our tattered trust that the Spirit who had given us life would not leave us in the wilderness without offering us life again. — Barbara Brown Taylor

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By Maddy Malhotra

Prayer without faith is not answered. — Maddy Malhotra

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By David G. McAfee

For those who want to pray for me to "find God," please don't waste your prayers. If you really think God is listening to you, then please use those precious moments to ask God to care for the sick and dying, and leave me out of it. I'm happy without my faith and with living my life in the here and now. Besides, thousands before you have prayed for me to find God and it hasn't worked yet. Why would God value your request over theirs? — David G. McAfee

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By E. M. Bounds

Men and women are needed whose prayers will give to the world the utmost power of God; who will make His promises to blossom with rich and full results. God is waiting to hear us and challenges us to bring Him to do this thing by our praying. He is asking us, to-day, as He did His ancient Israel, to prove Him now herewith." Behind God's Word is God Himself, and we read: "Thus saith the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, his Maker: Ask of me of things to come and concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands, command ye me." As though God places Himself in the hands and at the disposal of His people who pray - as indeed He does. The dominant element of all praying is faith, that is conspicuous, cardinal and emphatic. Without such faith it is impossible to please God, and equally impossible to pray. — E. M. Bounds

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By Abraham Joshua Heschel

The primary purpose of prayer is not to make requests. The primary purpose is to praise, to sing, to chant. Because the essence of prayer is a song, and man cannot live without a song.
Prayer may not save us. But prayer may make us worthy of being saved. — Abraham Joshua Heschel

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

you only talk to yourself when you pray without believing and having faith in your prayers — Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By Edward McKendree Bounds

Enthusiasm is more active than faith, though enthusiasm cannot remove mountains nor call into action any of the omnipotent forces which faith can command. Activity is often at the expense of more solid, useful elements, and generally to the total neglect of prayer. To be too busy with God's work to commune with God, to be busy with doing church work without taking time to talk to God about His work, is the highway to backsliding, and many people have walked therein to the hurt of their immortal souls. — Edward McKendree Bounds

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By Terence Cooke

Without prayer, our faith is weakened, our love grows cold, our hope becomes uncertain. — Terence Cooke

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By Isaac Bashevis Singer

What concrete steps can I take now?" I asked the voice, and it replied: "Go to a house of prayer and pray."
"Without faith?" I countered, and the voice said: "You have more faith than you know. — Isaac Bashevis Singer

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By Albert Pike

Man is not to be comprehended as a starting-point, or progress as a goal, without those two great forces , Faith and Love . Prayer is sublime. — Albert Pike

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By Loretta Young

I believe in the efficacy of prayer and I have a deep and sorrowful sympathy for one who is without faith. I believe our Father answers every prayer-all prayers-with His matchless, inscrutable wisdom, with infinite compassion and with love. — Loretta Young

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By Dan Kimball

Time and again I hear how important the darker environment is to those at our vintage-faith worship gathering. Attenders feel they can freely pray in a corner by themselves without feeling that everyone is staring at them. — Dan Kimball

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By Andrew Murray

Let us beware of the prayer for forgiveness becoming a formality: only what is really confessed is really forgiven. Let us in faith accept the forgiveness as promised: as a spiritual reality, an actual transaction between God and us, it is the entrance into all the Father's love and all the privileges of children. Such forgiveness, as a living experience, is impossible without a forgiving spirit to others: as forgiven expresses the heavenward, so forgiving the earthward, relation of God's child. In each prayer to the Father I must be able to say that I know of no one whom I do not heartily love. 'And — Andrew Murray

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By Ruth Hurmence Green

Let us use our energy and our initiative to solve our problems without relying on prayers and wishful thinking. When we have faith in ourselves, we will find we do not have to have faith in gods. — Ruth Hurmence Green

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By John Wooden

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By Peace Pilgrim

I would like to emphasize again that right prayer leads to right action, that faith without works is dead. An excellent way to put thoughts into action is to write a letter for peace. — Peace Pilgrim

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By Peter Kreeft

The only way God can strengthen his presence in our will is to weaken his presence in our feelings. Otherwise we would become spiritual cripples, unable to walk without emotional crutches. This is why he gives us dryness, sufferings, and failures. — Peter Kreeft

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By Mahatma Gandhi

Prayer is an impossibility without a living faith in the presence of God within. — Mahatma Gandhi

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By Stormie O'martian

When you live by God's Word, your life works. When you live without God's Word, life doesn't work. God's Word builds you up, feeds your soul, and gives you strength, direction, guidance, hope, encouragement, and faith. Remember that He gave you His Word so that you would know Him and the way He wants You to live. — Stormie O'martian

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By William Gurnall

The Christian in prayer comes up close to God, with a humble boldness of faith, and takes hold of him, wrestles with him; yea, will not let him go without a blessing ... They are only a few noble-spirited souls, who dare take heaven by force, that are fit for this calling. — William Gurnall

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By Henry Clay Trumbull

Not prayer without faith, nor faith without prayer, but prayer in faith, is the cost of spiritual gifts and graces. — Henry Clay Trumbull

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By Pooja Ruprell

Let your faith in the Universe deepen, purify and strengthen most on your troublesome, dark days. If you close your eyes in prayer, surrendering every problem and desire, you will find a way out without fail. — Pooja Ruprell

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By Billy Graham

Don't forget: Without fuel, a fire grows cold - and without the "fuel" of the Bible, prayer, and Christian fellowship, our faith grows cold. — Billy Graham

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By Mahalia Jackson

Faith and prayer are the vitamins of the soul; man cannot live in health without them. — Mahalia Jackson

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By John Owen

Our great Pattern hath showed us what our deportment ought to be in all suggestions and temptations. When the devil showed Him "all the kingdoms of the world and the glory of them," to tempt Him withal, He did not stand and look upon them, viewing their glory, and pondering their empire ... but instantly, without stay, He cries, "Get thee hence, Satan." Meet thy temptation in its entrance with thoughts of faith concerning Christ on the cross; this will make it sink before thee. Entertain no parley, no dispute with it, if thou wouldst not enter into it. — John Owen

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By Mark Batterson

In fact, the death of a dream is often a subtle form of idolatry. We lose faith in the God who gave us the big dream and settle for a small dream that we can accomplish without His help. We go after dreams that don't require divine intervention. We go after dreams that don't require prayer. And the God who is able to do immeasurably more than all our right brain can imagine is supplanted by a god - lowercase g - who fits within the logical constraints of our left brain. — Mark Batterson

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By Jennifer Michael Hecht

Without the outside context of a political war between faith and reason, Epicurus does not fear that any single point he might award to the religious will be used against him. Nor is he eager to have his followers shunning prayer or ritual in order to demonstrate publicly their disbelief. Outside the context of a political war between faith and reason, more nuanced arrangements may be safely undertaken. — Jennifer Michael Hecht

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By Regina Brett

From now on, I pray like I mean it. No more hitting SEND over and over. It's changed my life. It has freed me from fear and opened up endless avenues for me as a writer, radio host, parent, wife, and friend. It has enhanced every relationship I'm in, starting with the most important one: my relationship with God. Real faith isn't praying without ceasing. It's believing that God heard you the first time. — Regina Brett

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By Richard Llewellyn

Then all the winds of Heaven ran to join hands and bend a shoulder, to bring down to me the sound of a noble hymn that was heavy with the perfume of Time That Has Gone.
The glittering multitudes were singing most mightily, and my heart was in blood to hear a Voice that I knew.
The Men of the Valley were marching again.
My Fathers were singing up there.
Loud, triumphant, the anthem rose, and I knew, in some deep place within, that in the royal music was a prayer to lift up my spirit, to be of good cheer, to keep the faith, that Death was only an end to the things that are made of clay, and to fight, without heed of wounds, all that brings death to the Spirit, with Glory to the Eternal Father, forever, Amen. — Richard Llewellyn

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By Samreen Ahsan

God remains hidden and silent unless you participate. Without God, we cannot. Without us, God will not. We are all the co-creators of reality with God. God moves only when there is intention or prayer. He walks toward us when we take the very first step. Faith is the prime step. — Samreen Ahsan

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By Jay Parini

It's impossible to see the face of Jesus without seeking that face in some concentrated way, in the practice of the faith, through prayer and action. — Jay Parini

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By W. Ian Thomas

Again, "Pray without ceasing" (1 Thess. 5:17), and here the word to pray does not mean to beg or to plead as if God were unwilling to give
but simply to expose by faith every situation as it arises, to the all-sufficiency of the One who indwells you by His life. — W. Ian Thomas

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By Ole Hallesby

Helplessness united with faith produces prayer, for without faith there can be no prayer. — Ole Hallesby

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By Sabrina Vourvoulias

So, with my knees pierced by needles and my shoulder sewn together by the slender thread of endorphins, I keep to my genuflection and end my story the only way that really fits. As a prayer that seals surrender. World without end. Amen. — Sabrina Vourvoulias

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By Jocelyn Green

Connect with positive people who will stand in faith with you and lift you up in prayer. Study the Word of God and put your faith in action, for the Bible declares, "Faith without deeds is dead" (James 2:26) — Jocelyn Green

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

praying without having faith in and believing in what you pray for is just a simple act of soliloquizing — Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By Virginia Euwer Wolff

We're so mixed up about religion in this culture. We say the Pledge of Allegiance, 'under God indivisible,' but there's no prayer in the schools. I would be so untethered without my personal faith. I wouldn't be able to go through a day - but that's my own experience. — Virginia Euwer Wolff

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By Andy Murray

I am sure that there are many Christians who will confess that their experience has been very much like my own-that we had long known the Lord without realizing that meekness and lowliness of heart should be the distinguishing feature of the disciple, as they were of the Master. Such humility is not a thing that will come on its own. It must be made the object of special desire, prayer, faith and practice. — Andy Murray

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By Mary Karr

I find a great deal of comfort and care in my faith and prayer. I'd sooner do without air than prayer. — Mary Karr

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By Bill Mallonee

Winnowing is more like a trip to the confessional ... transparent & vulnerable without being sentimental. These songs have elements that are more like prayers & pleas for faith. They're questionings and wrangling in the dark about the journey. — Bill Mallonee

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By John Climacus

Faith furnishes prayer with wings, without which it cannot soar to Heaven. — John Climacus

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By Thomas Lye

As prayer without faith is but a beating of the air, so trust without prayer [is] but a presumptuous bravado. He that promises to give, and bids us trust His promises, commands us to pray, and expects obedience to his commands. He will give, but not without our asking. — Thomas Lye

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By Smith Wigglesworth

A prayer without faith is without accomplishment — Smith Wigglesworth

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By David Brewster

If the God of revelation is most appropriately worshipped in the temple of religion, the God of nature may be equally honored in the temple of science. Even from its lofty minarets the philosopher may summon the faithful to prayer, and the priest and sage exchange altars without the compromise of faith or knowledge. — David Brewster

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By George W. Bush

My relationship with God through Christ has given me meaning and direction. My faith has made a big difference in my personal life, and my public life as well. I make personal decisions every day. Some are easy, and some aren't so easy. I have worries just like you do. And I pray. I pray for guidance. I pray for patience. I firmly believe in the power of intercessory prayer; and I know that I could not do my job without it. — George W. Bush

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By Christian D. Larson

To live always in the Secret Places of the Most High, To think only those thoughts that are inspired from above, To do all things in the conviction that God is with us, To give the best to all the world with no thought of reward, To leave all recompense to Him who doeth all things well, To love everybody as God loves us, and be Kind as He is Kind, To ask God for everything and in faith expect everything, To live in perpetual gratitude to Him who gives everything, To love God so much that we can inwardly feel that My Father and I are one, This is the prayer without ceasing, the true worship of the soul. — Christian D. Larson

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By Mahatma Gandhi

Undoubtedly, prayer requires a living faith in God. Successful satyagraha is inconceivable without that faith. — Mahatma Gandhi

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By Robin Bertram

Prayer without faith is as futile as a body without breathe. — Robin Bertram

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By Lauren F. Winner

And I understood that I ought not ask for a prayer language until I could ask without making it the test of my entire faith. — Lauren F. Winner

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By Pope John Paul II

If you really wish to follow Christ, if you want your love for him to grow and last, then you must be faithful to prayer. It is the key to the vitality of your life in Christ. Without prayer, your faith and love will die. If you are constant in daily prayer and in the Sunday celebration of Mass, your love for Jesus will increase. And your heart will know deep joy and peace, such as the world could never give. — Pope John Paul II

Prayer Without Faith Quotes By Jim Cymbala

Satan wants us to focus on the problem, not the Provider. He constantly points to what seems to be rather than to what God has promised to do. If we stop spending time with the Lord in prayer, the concerns of the physical world snatch our attention and dominate us, while the spiritual senses deaden and the promises fade.
I am absolutely convinced that the number one reason that Christians today don't pray more is because we do not grasp the connection between prayer and the promises of God. We are trying as individuals and churches to pray 'because we're supposed to' without a living faith in the promises of God concerning prayer. No faith life of any significance can be maintained by this 'ought-to' approach. There must be faith in God at the bottom.
...
When real faith in God arises, a certainty comes that when we call, he will answer ... that when we ask, we will receive ... that when we knock, the door will be opened ... — Jim Cymbala
