When you pray, you are exposing your real self and extending sincere, loving energy to yourself. It doesn't matter if your words are fancy or plain, and there is no way to do it right or wrong. Prayer is about opening your heart and being sincere." - Lucinda Bassett

"Proverbs, and the wisdom literature in general, counter the idea that being spiritual means handing all decisions over to the leading of the Lord. The opposite is true.

Yet when they have exercised their responsibility in decision-making, they can look back and see that the sovereign God has guided." - Graeme Goldsworthy

But in this coat, I was held to the earth, pulled to the past by its weight." - Craig Childs
