Ḡґℯαт ℚυø⊥εṧ :

“When God has something very great to accomplish for His church, it is His will that there should precede it the extraordinary prayers of His people.” — Jonathan Edwards

“Loving Lord and Heavenly Father I offer up today all that I am, all that I have, all that I do, and all that I suffer, to be Yours today and Yours forever. Give me grace, Lord, to do all that I know of Your holy will. Purify my heart, sanctify my thinking, correct my desires. Teach me, in all of today’s work and trouble and joy, to respond with honest praise, simple trust, and instant obedience, that my life may be in truth a living sacrifice, by the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the name of Your Son Jesus Christ, my Master and my all. Amen” — Elisabeth Elliott

"The failure under grace is that the church is living in carnality.  The stewardship under grace is to live under the control of the Holy Spirit and therefore grow to maturity and thereby glorify God.  By and large the church has failed to live under the control of the Spirit.  We're basically carnal." — Richard D. Emmons

"For me, the great challenge has always been to experience the reality of God in the midst of going to work and raising kids and cleaning house and paying the bills." — Richard Foster

"Have you realized that even the smallest work we do for the family which God has given to bring Him glory can be done as a act of worship towards God because that is His idea of service towards Him? It not the way we worship that matters to God, but all that matters to Him is whether our heart is invoved in communion, intimacy, praise and thanksgiving while we do whatever things in His name. Our heart involvement makes our work become as a pure act of worship towards God. It is better to worship God with the heart than to worship Him loud without the heart involved to glorify God!" — Abraham Israel
