Christian Living

Anxiety is the natural result when our hopes are centered in anything short of God and His will for us.
Billy Graham

I believe in God, the creator and ruler of the universe. I hold that a man’s religious faith is the greatest single force in his life for good.
Andy Kerr

You will never grow a close relationship with God by just attending church once a week or even having a daily quiet time. Friendship with God is built by sharing all your life experiences with Him.
Rick Warren

“Whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
John 4:14

I believe that players who truly are intent on honoring God with their lives and with their play make a difference. The spiritual atmosphere on our team, although not perfect, was generally conducive to mutual respect and self-sacrifice. It certainly enhanced the chemistry of our team.
Tom Osborne

The Power of Prayer

I have so much to do that I must spend several hours in prayer before I am able to do it.
John Wesley

The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.
James 5:16

To men who think praying their main business does God commit the keys of His kingdom, and by them does He work His spiritual wonders in this world.
E.M. Bounds

I have found the greatest power in the world is the power of prayer.
Cecil B. DeMille

The one concern of the devil is to keep Christians from praying. He fears nothing from prayerless studies, prayerless works and prayerless religion. He laughs at our toil, mocks at our wisdom, but trembles when we pray.
Samuel Chadwick

Trust God

Trust the past to God’s mercy, the present to God’s love and the future to God’s providence.
St. Augustine

In quietness and trust is your strength.
Isaiah 30:15

We cannot trust God until we know something about Him. The way to begin is by reading His word.
Catherine Marshall

Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.
Psalms 20:7

Trust God to remember you. He won’t forget your name. He won’t forget your circumstances. He certainly won’t forget your prayers. Trust Him, He remembers you.
Charles Swindoll

Prayer

Prayer at its highest is a two-way conversation – and for me the most important part is listening to God’s replies.
Frank Laubach

Prayer is the key of heaven; faith is the hand that turns it.
Thomas Watson

God does nothing but by prayer, and everything with it.
John Wesley

The disquieting thing is not simply that we skimp and begrudge the duty of prayer. The really disquieting thing is that it should have to be numbered among the duties at all. For we believe that we were created “to glorify God and enjoy Him forever.” And if the few, the very few, minutes we now spend on intercourse with God are a burden to us rather than a delight, what then? If we were perfected, prayer would not be a duty, it would be a delight.
C.S. Lewis

Heaven

I have found in my travels that those who keep heaven in view remain serene and cheerful in the darkest day. If the glories of heaven were more real to us, if we lived less for material things and more for things eternal and spiritual, we would be less easily disturbed by this present life.
Billy Graham

The bottom line is in heaven.
Edwin Land

If you read history you will find that the Christians who did most for the present world were just those who thought most of the next.
C.S. Lewis

Earthly crowns are dross to him who looks for a heavenly one.
Jane Porter

If God hath made this world so fair
Where sin and death abound,
How beautiful beyond compare
Will paradise be found.
James Montgomery

Christian Living

When we come to Christ, He doesn’t just patch us up. He renews us. He doesn’t just reform us. He transforms us by His power.
Billy Graham

The Christian is not a man who is better than someone else, but one who is better than he would be if he were not a Christian.
Anonymous

The biggest fallacy is in the people’s perception of Christianity and their belief that you can’t be a Christian and still be competitive.
Dan Reeves

I feel I can never be as good as people think I am. But I try hard to be a Christian and do right.
Byron Nelson

I was convinced that the basic tenets of Christianity provided a solid foundation upon which to build a life – as well as a football program.
Tom Osborne

The Importance of Prayer

I can no longer condemn or hate a brother for whom I pray, no matter how much trouble he causes me.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Prayer is the secret of power.
Evan Roberts

When you pray for our nation, God will change things – and He will change you in a way that will touch your country.
Stormie Omartian

A sinning man will stop praying. A praying man will stop sinning.
Leonard Ravenhill

Prayer is not bending God’s will to ours, but our will to God’s. In prayer, we tap vast reservoirs of spiritual power whereby God can find fuller entrance into the hearts of men.
G. Ashton Oldham
