Faith is a wonderful mechanism for learning to be patient and to accept our faults, fears and failures for what they ultimately are: mere scratches on the surface of an otherwise blessed and rewarding life.
— Mary Lou Retton
We must look fear straight in the eye and take it on. We must tell ourselves that we have too much talent, too much wisdom, too much value not to change.
— Rick Pitino
If you listen to your fears, you will die never knowing what a great person you might have been.
— Robert Schuller
When you’re afraid, keep your mind on what you have to do. And if you have been thoroughly prepared, you will not be afraid.

Fear is a thought pattern and can be changed by a process of displacement. The only thing greater than fear is faith. So I endeavor to keep my mind full of faith; faith in God and faith in myself as a child of God. I find that the more faith I have the less fear I have.
— Norman Vincent Peale
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
Stepping out in faith always brings clarification of God’s plan.
— Charles Swindoll

As long as we wait until we can do God’s work, we will remain in a holding pattern, because God’s work requires faith in Him, not faith in our abilities.
— David Young
Never wait for a miracle. Go after your dream. Do your part to the very best of your ability, and ask God to make up the difference. He won’t act until we step out in faith.
— John Maxwell
God’s blessings don’t necessarily come through the kindness of others. In fact, it is often in spite of a lack of others’ kindness that God is able to perform the most mighty deeds. The miracle begins when we remove the training wheels of dependency on others.
— T.D. Jakes
When we look back at the faithfulness of God, we praise Him. When we look forward to God’s faithfulness, we trust Him.
— Ken Watters

— Robert Schuller
Faith is believing in things when common sense tells you not to.
— George Seaton

It is important to remember that it is the nature of a vision to have gaps. If there were no gaps, somebody else would have already delivered the goods. For this reason, every successful inventor, leader and explorer faces criticism.
— Andy Stanley
Generally speaking, if God has given you a vision of involvement and achievement, do not expect anyone else to fully appreciate it, because it is a personal vision for you alone, and it is rare for another person to relate on that personal wave length.
— Peter Daniels
Vision looks inward and becomes duty. Vision looks outward and becomes aspiration. Vision looks upward and becomes faith.
— Stephen Wise
When God gives a vision, transact business on that line, no matter what it costs.
— Oswald Chambers
The world is hard on a vision. After all, a vision is about change. And change is not welcomed in most arenas of life. For a vision to survive, it must be mature and healthy before being exposed to the cynical, critical, stubborn environment in which it is expected to survive.
— Andy Stanley
