quotes about prayer

I burn his armor and with it the name of Darth Vader. May the name of Anakin Skywalker be a light that guides the Jedi for generations to come… Rest well, father. The Force is with you.
Because He respects your agency, Father in Heaven will never force you to pray to Him. But as you exercise that agency and include Him in every aspect of your daily life, your heart will begin to fill with peace, buoyant peace. That peace will focus an eternal light on your struggles. It will help you to manage those challenges from an eternal perspective.
—  Richard G. Scott
Why do we close our eyes when we pray, cry, kiss or dream? Because the most beautiful things in life are not seen but felt by the heart.

I think the purest form of

brotherhood that I ever saw,

was in my beautiful

hometown,

Pakistan,

on the side of a dirty road,

late at night, during a

long power cut,

when two little boys,

covered in dirt and soot,

probably beggars, wrapped their

arms around each other,

and laughed the sincerest

laugh I have ever heard,

the most beautiful sound

I have ever heard,

and turned around and parted ways,

never to see each other again,

and then I realised,

all the pretenses that we put up,

everybody we try to please,

all the friends we have for the

sake of having friends,

are not nearly as pure,

as the sense of community,

between these two little

boys, who have

nothing.
