A few quotes from a man my father always loved and talked about.

O God, forgive the poverty and the pettiness of our prayers . Listen not to our words but to the yearnings of our hearts. Hear beneath our petitions the crying of our need.
Peter Marshall

God hasn’t given up on you. He can still do great things for you, in you, and through you. God is ready and waiting and able. What about you, and me?
Peter Marshall

One person with a belief is equal to a force of ninety-nine who have only interests.
Peter Marshall

Lord Jesus, thou who art the way, the truth, and the life; hear us as we pray for the truth that shall make all free. Teach us that liberty is not only to be loved but also to be lived. Liberty is too precious a thing to be buried in books. It costs too much to be hoarded. Help us see that our liberty is not the right to do as we please, but the opportunity to please to do what is right.
Peter Marshall

When we long for life without difficulties, remind us that oaks grow strong in contrary winds and diamonds are made under pressure.
Peter Marshall
