To be a Christian without prayer is no more possible than to be alive without breathing.
Breathing Christian More Possible Prayer
You are the answer to every prayer I've offered. You are a song, a dream, a whisper, and I don't know how I could have lived without you for as long as I have.
Prayer is not asking. It is a longing of the soul. It is daily admission of one's weakness. It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without a heart.
Asking Better Daily Heart Longing
To give pleasure to a single heart by a single act is better than a thousand heads bowing in prayer.
Better Bowing Give Heads Heart
The function of prayer is not to influence God, but rather to change the nature of the one who prays.
Function God Influence Nature Prayer
I have never made but one prayer to God, a very short one: Oh Lord, make my enemies ridiculous. And God granted it."
(Letter to Étienne Noël Damilaville, May 16, 1767)
