Incredible Quote

April 11, 2008

“Prayer is a longing. You do not say it, you long it, dream it, imagine it, give your life for it, weep over it. It keeps you up late at night, it is your soul crying out and not just neat words with an amen at the end. If you mean it you will live it. The words rest on your soul and grip you.”

-Steve Chalke



  1. excellent quote. i need to pray more.

  2. True, but it’s also words spoken to God so I can hear myself confessing those things. It sinks into my soul that much more.

    Not everything has to be complicated.

  3. Yea, I don’t think Chalke was implying that it’s bad to speak your prayers. He is just illustrating that they can’t be empty words/habits.
