1004. Prayer is exhaling the spirit of man and inhaling the spirit of God. ~Edwin Keith

I believe in God, and that there are pieces of him, called love and goodness, in everyone. I also believe in prayer, not the memorized type mumbled in church but the spontaneous kind spoken, ironically, in the last breath of the day, when the lamp has been dimmed and the bedspread drawn down, and it’s just you and those pieces of God in you, alone…. I suspect that when a man grows too big to kneel, then he is destined to fall. ~Joe Kita

By day the Lord directs his love, at night his song is with me— a prayer to the God of my life. ~Psalm 42:8  ✝

  1. I love this Natalie. You always manage to find quotations that say what I need at any given moment, even the “sweet” one a couple of days ago LOL I was having a similar kind of day and you actually expressed my feeling so well. Hugs, A.

    • Thanks so much, Staci. Sometimes when I’m stressed I try to imagine that I’m inhaling God’s breath and exhaling my worry and/or fears. So I really liked that quote too. I’m glad you did as well. Love and hugs, N 🙂 ❤
