Doubt not but God who sits on high,
  Thy secret prayers can hear;
    When a dead wall thus cunningly
      Conveys soft whispers to the ear.
      - Unattributed Author,
        verse inscribed in the Whispering Gallery of Gloucester Cathedral

O God, if in the day of battle I forget Thee, do not Thou forget me.
      - Unattributed Author,

Now I lay me down to take my sleep,
  I pray thee, Lord, my soul to keep;
    If I should die before I wake;
      I pray thee, Lord, my soul to take.
      - Unattributed Author, New England Primer

I pray the prayer the Easterners do,
  May the peace of Allah abide with you;
    Wherever you stay, wherever you go,
      May the beautiful palms of Allah grow;
        Through days of labor, and nights of rest,
          The love of Good Allah make you blest;
            So I touch my heart--as the Easterners do,
              May the peace of Allah abide with you.
      - Unattributed Author,
        Salaam Alaikum (Peace be with you.)

Prayer is an offering up of our desires unto God, for things agreeable to His will, in the name of Christ, with confession of our sins, and thankful acknowledgment of His mercies.
      - Unattributed Author,
        Westminister Catechism

A certain joyful, though humble, confidence becomes us when we pray in the Mediator's name. It is due to Him; when we pray in His name it should be without wavering. Remember His merits, and how prevalent they must be. "Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace."
      - Nehemiah Adams

Yet then from all my grief, O Lord,
  Thy mercy set me free,
    Whilst in the confidence of pray'r
      My soul took hold on thee.
      - Joseph Addison,
        Miscellaneous Poems--Divine Ode made by Gentleman on Conclusion of his Travels
         (verse 6)

It is as natural and reasonable for a dependent creature to apply to its Creator for what it needs, as for a child thus to solicit the aid of a parent who is believed to have the disposition and ability to bestow what it needs.
      - Archibald Alexander

Prayer is the wing wherewith the soul flies to heaven, and meditation the eye wherewith we see God.
      - Saint Ambrose

Prayer begins where human capacity ends.
      - Marian Anderson

Almighty Power, by whose most wise command, helpless, forlorn, uncertain, here I stand, take this faint glimmer of thyself away, or break into my soul with perfect day!
      - John Arbuthnot

Like an echo from a ruined castle, prayer is an echo from the ruined human soul of the sweet promise of God.
      - William D. Arnot

He that loveth little prayeth little; he that loveth much prayeth much.
      - Saint Aurelius Augustine (Augustine of Hippo)

How can He grant you what you do not desire to receive?
      - Saint Aurelius Augustine (Augustine of Hippo)

Any heart turned Godward feels more joy
  In one short hour of prayer, than e'er was raised
    By all the feasts of earth since its foundation.
      - Philip James Bailey

Prayer is the spirit speaking truth to Truth.
      - Philip James Bailey, Festus
         (sc. Elsewhere)

A good man's prayers will from the deepest dungeon climb heaven's height, and bring a blessing down.
      - Joanna Baillie

Between the humble and contrite heart and the majesty of Heaven there are no barriers. The only password is prayer.
      - Hosea Ballou

Embark in no enterprise which you cannot submit to the test of prayer.
      - Hosea Ballou

Pray not too often for great favors, for we stand most in need of small ones.
      - James Lendall Basford

And from the prayer of Want, and plaint of Woe,
  O never, never turn away their ear!
    Forlorn, in this bleak wilderness below,
      Ah! what were man, should Heaven refuse to hear!
      - James Beattie, Minstrel (bk. I, st. 29)

Prayer is a virtue that prevaileth against all temptations.
      - Saint Bernard of Clairvaux

Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.
      - Bible, Hebrews (ch. X, v. 22)

But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
      - Bible, Hebrews (ch. XI, v. 6)

If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
  But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like the a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
      - Bible, James (ch. I, v. 5-6)
