Prayer indeed is good, but while calling on the gods a man should himself lend a hand.

Hope, he called, belief In God,--work, worship . . . therefore let us pray!
Elizabeth Barrett Browning

You should pray for a sound mind in a sound body.

If the only prayer you ever say in your whole life is "thank you," that would suffice.
Meister Eckhart

Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.

The time to pray is not when we are in a tight spot but just as soon as we get out of it.
Josh Billings

Pray, n:. To ask that the laws of the universe be annulled in behalf of a single petitioner confessedly unworthy.

Every wish Is like a prayer--with God.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning

He prayeth well who loveth well Both man and bird and beast.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge

They never sought in vain that sought the Lord aright!
Robert Burns

Father of Light! great God of Heaven! Hear'st thou the accents of despair? Can guilt like man's be e'er forgiven? Can vice atone for crimes by prayer?
Lord Byron

She knows omnipotence has heard her prayer And cries, "It shall be done--sometimes, somewhere."
Ophelia G. Browning

Just my vengeance complete, The man sprang to his feet, Stood erect, caught at God's skirts, and prayed! So, I was afraid!
Robert Browning

He prayeth best who loveth best All things, both great and small.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge

God answers sharp and sudden on some prayers, And thrusts the thing we have prayed for in our face, A gauntlet with a gift in 't.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

Father! no prophet's laws I seek,-- Thy laws in Nature's works appear;-- I own myself corrupt and weak, Yet will I pray, for thou wilt hear.
Lord Byron

The saints will aid if men will call: For the blue sky bends over all.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge

And Satan trembles when he sees The weakest saint upon his knees.
William Cowper
