Inspirational Quotations About Prayer

Prayer is an intricate part of our spiritual life, our daily life and growth in our relationship with our Lord. In a previous article, I wrote about various Forms of Prayer - covering several types of prayer like traditional, conversation, contemplative, as well as admiring God's creation all around us.
