Prayer opens the heart to God, and it is the means by which the soul, though empty, is filled by God.
Pray often; for prayer is a shield to the soul, a sacrifice to God, and a scourge for Satan
He who runs from God in the morning will scarcely find him the rest of the day
If we have not quiet in our minds, outward comfort will do no more for us than a golden slipper on a gouty foot.
My sword I give to him that shall succeed me in my pilgrimage, and my courage and skill to him that can get it.
You can do more than pray, after you have prayed, but you cannot do more than pray until you have prayed
If you have sinned, do not lie down without repentance; for the want of repentance after one has sinned makes the heart yet harder and harder
Sin is the dare of God's justice, the rape of His mercy, the jeer of His patience, the slight of His power, and the contempt of His love
Temptations, when we meet them at first, are as the lion that roared upon Samson; but if we overcome them, the next time we see them we shall find a nest of honey within them
Now may this little Book a blessing beTo those that love this little Book, and me:And may its Buyer have no cause to say,His money is but lost, or thrown away.
In prayer it is better to have a heart without words than words without a heart.
I have given Him my faith, and sworn my allegiance to Him; how, then, can I go back from this, and not be hanged as a traitor?
Prayer will make a man cease from sin, or sin will entice a man to cease from prayer.
This hill, though high, I covet to ascend; The difficulty will not me offend. For I perceive the way to life lies here. Come, pluck up, heart; let's neither faint nor fear. Better, though difficult, the right way to go, Than wrong, though easy, where the end is woe.
Whoso beset him roundWith dismal storiesDo but themselves confound;His strength the more is.
