“And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.”–Matthew 6:5-6

“Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.”–James 4:3

“The function of prayer is not to influence God, but rather to change the nature of the one who prays.”–Søren Kierkegaard

“If you pray with an attitude of surrender, then your prayer was already answered through gifting you the right attitude.”–Kevin Everett FitzMaurice
