Words On Prayer, Love, and Adoption

When you pray, move your feet.
~African proverb
Words which do not give the light of Christ increase the darkness.
~Mother Teresa

I believe there is only one truly courageous thing we can do with our lives: to love unconditionally. Absolutely, with all of ourselves, so much that it hurts and then more.
~Katie Davis
We adopt not because we are rescuers, but because we have been rescued.
~David Platt
Orphans are easier to ignore before you know their names. They are easier to ignore before you see their faces. It is easier to pretend they're not real before you hold them in your arms. But once you do, everything changes.
~David Platt
When I have learned to love God better than my earthly dearest, I shall love my earthly dearest better than I do now.
~C.S. Lewis
What happens in the spiritual realm when we pray? It's such a mystery. What words prompt the Spirit to move? What goodness do we join Him on when we pray for peace? How powerful are our prayer words? They are a catalyst for miracles, the impetus for healing. Does God wait for us to pray in His will, primed to move for righteousness? How many relationships is He waiting to mend? How much turmoil is He poised to soothe? How much peace is He ready to administer? Are we withholding the necessary words to trigger God's intervention?
