Blog: Quotes from Prayer: Experiencing Awe and Intimacy with God by Timothy Keller [Video]

“The infallible test of spiritual integrity, Jesus says, is your private prayer life.”
“The greatness of prayer is nothing but an extension of the greatness and glory of God in our lives … To fail to pray, then, is not to merely break some religious rule — it is a failure to treat God as God. It is a sin against his glory”
“Prayer is not a passive, calm, quiet practice.”
“More specifically Jesus’ prayers were given the rejection that we sinners merit so that our prayer could have the reception that he merits”
“If you forget the costliness of sin, your prayers of confession and repentance will be shallow and trivial”
“Prayer is like waking up from a nightmare to reality. We laugh at what we took so seriously inside the dream. We realize that all is truly well. Of course, prayer can have the opposite effect; it can puncture illusions and show us we are in more spiritual danger than we thought.”
“Those who believe the gospel — who believe that they are the recipients of undeserved but unshakable grace — grow in a paradoxically loving yet joyful fear”
“Prayer should be done regularly, persistently, resolutely, and tenaciously at least daily, whether we feel like it or not”
“Prayer is our way of entering into the happiness of God himself”
“Prayer gives us relief from the melancholy burden of self-absorption.”
“We know God will answer us when we call because one terrible day he did not answer Jesus when he called. . . . Jesus’ prayers were given the rejection that we sinners merit so that our prayers could have the reception that he merits.”
“Prayer—though it is often draining, even an agony—is in the long term the greatest source of power that is possible.”
