|Dear Princess, Number 6 (Summer 1998) | Timeless Truths Publications, 1998||Prayer|
Love "endureth all things." What?... Does God really have grace for me to love my little sister who cut two big holes in a cross-stitch that took two years to complete?!... If He loved [the Jews who crucified Him], can not I find grace in my heart to love her?

|How I Learned to Pray for the Lost | Anonymous/Unknown, 2011||Prayer|
We may say that each one is actually God's purchased possession, although still held by the enemy. We must through the prayer of faith, claim and take for God, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, that which is rightfully His.

|Not Looking, but Trusting | William J. Harney, 1915||Prayer|
Elijah would not... look at surroundings and circumstances. To look would have meant discouragement; to look would have defeated God's purpose... to look would have meant the loss of all. So he covered up his "lookers," and just would not look.

|Odors from Golden Vials | Charles E. Orr, 1912||Prayer|
Those who have been praying for years and have the closest intimacy with God have a desire to know still more about prayer. How little we yet know of God! It is true that He has taught us many glorious things of Himself... but there is much more to learn.

|Renewed Day by Day | George Muller, 1855||Prayer|
The first thing to be concerned about is not how much I might serve the Lord, or how I might glorify the Lord; but how I might get my soul into a happy state, and how my inner man might be nourished.

|Surmounting Barriers to Faith | George D. Watson, 1894||Prayer|
Her quest was not yet over. For we now see four great barriers her faith had yet to surmount; namely, divine silence, human coldness, class, and humiliation. If we look at these in detail, we find that they illustrate the vital issues in many lives today.

|Take Time | George D. Watson, 1898||Prayer|
To rush forward in our thinking, speaking, and doing, demonstrates a lack of faith in God, and how little we perceive His presence and dominion over all things. It is true in a thousand different things that "he that believeth shall not make haste."

|Touching Incidents: Children’s Edition | Solomon B. Shaw, 1895||Prayer|
" 'All things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.' " She looked up at the pastor earnestly, and inquired: "Is that so? Does God say that?" ... She immediately began praying: "Lord, send my father here; Lord, send my father to the chapel."

|Treasures of the Kingdom, Number 35 (April 2005) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2005||Prayer|
"Candy?" Spiteful looked surprised. He pulled the silver case out of his pocket and turned it over in his dirty hands. "Open it like this, see?" Precious said, unsnapping the case. The peppermint stick rolled out.... "It's for you. I hope you like it," Precious said quietly.

|Treasures of the Kingdom, Number 66 (Winter 2015) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2015||Prayer|
Imagine a small child falling into a pit and calling for help. Wouldn't his father hurry to get him out? If the pit was very deep, the child would seem very far away, but wouldn't the father be even more eager to rescue him? That is how God looks at sin and forgiveness.

|Treasures of the Kingdom, Number 71 (Winter 2017) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2017||Prayer|
"I thought we prayed that my throat wouldn't hurt?!" Mama... explained that sometimes we have to pray that God will move the devil out of the way so we can enjoy God answering our prayers. Judith and Mama prayed that way.... There was no more crying that night.

|Walk in Love | George D. Watson, 1894||Prayer|
To walk in love—to speak, to act, to purpose, with the love of God pervading our every movement—is the best and sublimest form of existence. To do this there must be a thorough abandonment of self-will, self-opinion, and self-desire.
