Christian! Christ is your truest and best friend. Prayer is simply your little talk with Christ, as you would sit down with any dear, tender, close and trusted human friend for a little talk.

The sweetest life is the one which nestles the most quietly and unquestioningly in the bosom of Jesus.

The mercy of God is infinite! He is infinitely patient with our weaknesses, our infirmities, our faults and failures.
