But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.

Faith builds in the dungeon and lazarhouse its sublimest shrines; and up, through roofs of stone, that shut out the eye of heaven, ascends the ladder where the angels glide to and fro,--prayer.
      - Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

In prayer it is better to have a heart without words than words without a heart.
      - John Bunyan

Prayer is a shield to the soul, a sacrifice to God, and a scourge for Satan.
