8 Prayer Quotes from Literature

"Here was I asking a blessing and neglecting the means, which is a mockery." ~ Cousin Phillis by Elizabeth Gaskell "It seemed to me that where others had prayed before to their God, in their joy or in their agony, was of itself a sacred place." ~ Cranford by Elizabeth Gaskell Recollections of the past and visions of the present come to bear me company; the meanest man to whom I have ever given alms appears, to add his mite of peace and comfort to my stock; and whenever the fire within me shall grow cold, to light my path upon this earth no more, I pray that it may be at such an hour as this, and when I love the world as well as I do now. ~ Master Humphrey's Clock by Charles Dickens "Walter," she said, looking full upon him with her affectionate eyes, "like you, I hope for better things. I will pray for them, and believe that they will arrive." ~ Dombey and Son by Charles Dickens We are praying now for the repose of his soul. Hoping you're well and not in hell. Nice change of air. Out of the frying pan of life into the fire of purgatory. ~ Ulysses by James Joyce I hain't ever seen her since that time that I see her go out of that door; no, I hain't ever seen her since, but I reckon I've thought of her a many and a many a million times, and of her saying she would pray for me; and if ever I'd a thought it would do any good for me to pray for HER, blamed if I wouldn't a done it or bust. ~ The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain Pray for me! I reckoned if she knowed me she'd take a job that was more nearer her size. But I bet she done it, just the same--she was just that kind. She had the grit to pray for Judus if she took the notion--there warn't no back-down to her, I judge. ~ The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain So they lived, these men, in their own lusty, cheery fashion--rude and rough, but honest, kindly and true. Let us thank God if we have outgrown their vices. Let us pray to God that we may ever hold their virtues. ~ The White Company by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
