Mother Teresa was a wonderful woman of God who gave her life for the poor and sick in Calcutta. She is known for her deep faith and commitment to love and prayer. May these quotes on prayer deepen your own faith and love.

  1. For prayer is nothing else than being on terms of friendship with God.
  2. God speaks in the silence of the heart. Listening is the beginning of prayer.
  3. Faith is a gift of God. Without it there would be no life. And our work, to be fruitful, and to be all for God, and to be beautiful, has to be built on faith — faith in Christ, who has said, I was hungry, I was naked, I was sick, and I was homeless, and you ministered to me. On these words of His, our work is based.
  4. God thirsts to love and be loved by you-that is how precious you are to Him.
  5. Let no one ever come to you without coming away better and happier.
  6. Love to pray. Feel often during the day the need for prayer, and take trouble to pray. Prayer enlarges the heart until it is capable of containing God’s gift of Himself. Ask and seek, and your heart will grow big enough to receive Him and keep Him as your own.
  7. May God break my heart so completely that the whole world falls in.
  8. May I dwell in the breath of God.
  9. Prayer is putting oneself in the hands of God, and listening to His voice in the depth of our hearts.
  10. Spend one hour each day in adoration of your Lord, and never do anything you know is wrong. Follow this and you’ll be fine.
  11. The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread.
  12. Through prayer I become one in love with Christ
  13. To love, it is necessary to give. To give, it is necessary to be free from selfishness.
  14. We need to find God, and He cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature—trees, flowers, grass—grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence. We need silence to be able to touch souls.
  15. We have very little, so we have nothing to be preoccupied with. The more you have the more you are occupied, the less you give. But the less you have, the more free you are.
