Let prayer be the key of the morning and the bolt of the evening.
      - Matthew (Mathew) Henry

He that will learne to pray, let him goe to Sea.
  [He that will learn to pray, let him go to Sea.]
      - George Herbert, Jacula Prudentum

Resort to sermons, but to prayers most:
  Praying's the end of preaching.
      - George Herbert, Temple--The Church Porch
         (st. 69)

Who goes to bed, and doth not pray,
  Maketh two nights to every day!
      - George Herbert,
        Temple--The Church--Charms and Knots
         (st. 4)

Prayer is the chief thing that man may present unto God.
      - Georg Hermes

In prayer the lips ne'er act the winning part
  Without the sweet concurrence of the heart.
      - Robert Herrick, Hesperides--The Heart

Prayer is the breath of a new-born soul, and there can be no Christian life without it.
      - Rowland Hill

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

So much of our lives is celestial and divine as we spend in the exercise of prayer.
      - Richard Hooker

Our prayer and God's mercy are like two buckets in a well; while the one ascends, the other descends.
      - Bishop John Henry Hopkins

Prayer is the voice of faith.
      - William Van Horne,
        On the 143rd Psalm, Verse 6

Certain thoughts are prayers. There are moments when, whatever be the attitude of the body, the soul is on its knees.
      - Victor Hugo

Prayer is intended to increase the devotion of the individual, but if the individual himself prays he requires no formula; he pours himself forth much more naturally in self-chosen and connected thoughts before God, and scarcely requires words at all. Real inward devotion knows no prayer but that arising from the depths of its own feelings.
      - Wilhelm von Humboldt

For the most part, we should pray rather in aspiration than petition, rather by hoping than requesting; in which spirit also we may breathe a devout wish for a blessing on others upon occasions when it might be presumptuous to beg it.
      - Leigh Hunt (James Henry Leigh Hunt)

The prayer of Noah,
  He cried out in the darkness, Hear, O God,
    Hear Him: hear this one; through the gates of death,
      If life be all past praying for, O give
        To Thy great multitude a way to peace;
          Give them to Him.
      - Jean Ingelow, A Story of Doom
         (bk. IX, st. 6)

Is there never a chink in the world above
  Where they listen for words from below?
      - Jean Ingelow, Supper at the Mill

A good deed is the best prayer.
      - Robert Green Ingersoll

To prevent famine, one plow is worth a million sermons, and even patent medicines will cure more diseases than all the prayers uttered since the beginning of the world.
      - Robert Green Ingersoll

It lightens the stroke to draw near to Him who handles the rod.
      - Washington Irving

Affliction teacheth a wicked person some time to pray; prosperity, never.
      - Ben Jonson

My brother kneels, so saith Kabir,
  To stone and brass in heathen-wise
    But in my brother's voice I hear
      My own unanswered agonies.
        His God is as his fates assign
          His prayer is all the world's--and mine.
      - Rudyard Kipling, Song of Kabir

The protection of God cannot, without sacrilege, be invoked but in behalf of justice and right.
      - Louis Kossuth

I ask and wish not to appear
  More beauteous, rich or gay:
    Lord, make me wiser every year,
      And better every day.
      - Charles Lamb (used pseudonym Elia),
        A Birthday Thought

Solicitude is the audience-chamber of God.
      - Walter Savage Landor

Hold prayer in high esteem. It is the foundation of all the virtues, and the source of all grace needed to sanctify ourselves and to discharge the duties of our employment.
      - St. Jean Baptiste de la Salle, adapted
