Prayer: An Open Invitation To Call Home

Prayer is an open invitation to call home anytime. Find encouragement and inspiration in this short collection of quotes on prayer.


We live during unstable times in an unstable world.

And that’s okay because, as Christians, this world is not our home. Not the place we go for comfort, reassurance or answers.

Our home is with Jesus who is preparing a place for us in His Father’s house.

In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you.     John 14:2


And we have an open invitation to call home anytime!

Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.     Jeremiah 29:12

Call to Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know.     Jeremiah 33:3

O LORD, You have heard the desire of the humble; You will strengthen their heart, You will incline Your ear.     Psalm 10:17

Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.     Matthew 7:7-8


Each of the following quotes captures a tiny essence of the mystery of prayer. May they encourage and inspire you to acknowledge your dependence on God and call home any time.
