No one can pray and worry at the same time. — Max Lucado

Prayer is the window that God has placed in the walls of our world. Leave it shut and the world is a cold, dark house. But throw back the curtains and see His light. Open the window and hear His voice. Open the window of prayer and invoke the presence of God in your world. — Max Lucado

I choose gentleness... Nothing is won by force. I choose to be gentle. If I raise my voice may it be only in praise. If I clench my fist, may it be only in prayer. If I make a demand, may it be only of myself. — Max Lucado

Prayer is the hand of faith on the door knob of your heart, inviting Jesus to enter. — Max Lucado

The greater your cares, the more genuine your prayers — Max Lucado

You're never without hope, because you're never without prayer. — Max Lucado

Your requests change history because your prayers change God! — Max Lucado

It seems to me that the prayers of the Bible can be distilled into one. The result is a simple, easy-to-remember, pocket-sized prayer: Father, you are good. I need help. They need help. Thank you. In Jesus' name, amen. Let this prayer punctuate your day. — Max Lucado

Faithful servants have a way of knowing answered prayer when they see it, and a way of not giving up when they don't. — Max Lucado

Max Lucado Quotes On Grace

Go to table of contents

You have a God who hears you, the power of love behind you, the Holy Spirit within you, and all of heaven ahead of you. If you have the Shepherd, you have grace for every sin, direction for every turn, a candle for every corner and an anchor for every storm. You have everything you need. — Max Lucado

Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. To these I commit my day. If I succeed, I will give thanks. If I fail, I will seek his grace. And then, when this day is done, I will place my head on my pillow and rest. — Max Lucado

Our Savior kneels down and gazes upon the darkest acts of our lives. But rather than recoil in horror, he reaches out in kindness and says, "I can clean that if you want." And from the basin of his grace, he scoops a palm full of mercy and washes away our sin. — Max Lucado

God answers the mess of life with one word: Grace. — Max Lucado

The difference between mercy and grace? Mercy gave the prodigal son a second chance. Grace gave him a feast. — Max Lucado

Grace is the voice that calls us to change and gives us the power to pull it off. — Max Lucado

God has the final word on your life and His word is grace. — Max Lucado

Max Lucado Quotes On Hope

Our belief in God is not blind faith. Belief is having a firm conviction something is true, not hoping it's true. — Max Lucado

Look at the Bethlehem birth. A king ordered a census. Joseph was forced to travel. Mary, as round as a ladybug, bounced on a donkey's back. The hotel was full. The hour was late. The event was one big hassle. Yet, out of the hassle, hope was born. It still is. — Max Lucado

Refusing to forgive is like ingesting a lethal dose of poison and hoping it kills my enemy. — Max Lucado

You weren't an accident. You weren't mass produced. You aren't an assembly-line product. You were deliberately planned, specifically gifted, and lovingly positioned on the earth by the Master Craftsman. — Max Lucado

God loves you just the way you are, but he refuses to leave you that way. — Max Lucado

Trust God's love. His perfect love. Don't fear He will discover your past. He already has. Don't fear disappointing Him in the future. He can show you the chapter in which you will.

When I was a young kid, my dad, a man of few words, told my brother and me, "Boys, Christmas is about Jesus." I thought about what he said, and I began asking the Christmas questions. I've been asking them ever since. I love the answers I've found. — Max Lucado

God crowns us. Most people crown their Christmas trees with either an angel or a star. God uses both. — Max Lucado

God is always near us. Always for us. Always in us. — Max Lucado

Our task is to stand tall in God's love, secure in our place, sparkling in kindness, surrounded by his goodness, freely giving to all who come our way. You, me, and the Christmas tree. Picked, purchased, and pruned. — Max Lucado

Max Lucado Quotes On Peace

Conflict is inevitable but combat is optional. — Max Lucado

Michael Jordan once said that the most peaceful moments of his life were on a basketball court, because that's the only place he knew exactly what to do. And to me the most peaceful moments in my ministry are in the pulpit because that's when I really know what I'm going to do. — Max Lucado

Just as your earthly house is a place of refuge, so God's house is a place of peace. — Max Lucado

His is a joy which consequences cannot quench. His is a peace which circumstances cannot steal. — Max Lucado

We've been taught that the Christian life is a life of peace, and when we don't have peace, we assume the problem lies within us. Not only do we feel anxious, but we also feel guilty about our anxiety! The result is a downward spiral of worry, guilt, worry, guilt. — Max Lucado

We've got to realize there's something bigger than who is in the White House. And that is the spirit of camaraderie and peace that keeps our nation together. — Max Lucado

Gratitude is a dialysis of sorts... it flushes the self-pity out of our systems. — Max Lucado

It's no wonder, that God's anxiety therapy includes a large, delightful dollop of gratitude. The anxious heart says, "Lord, if only I had this, that, or the other, I'd be okay." The grateful heart says, "Oh, look! You've already given me this, that, and the other. Thank you, God." — Max Lucado

Gratitude. More aware of what you have than what you don't. Recognizing the treasure in the simple - a child's hug, fertile soil, a golden sunset. Relishing in the comfort of the common. — Max Lucado

Gratitude develops faith. The surest path out of a slump is marked by the road sign "thank you, God." — Max Lucado

The influence of the Church does not depend on the Church, it depends on the Holy Spirit. And the Holy Spirit will never lose its influence. He is God and He is influencing society. — Max Lucado

The strength of a story is that it stays with people and it gives an opportunity for that story to connect with people where the Holy Spirit intends for it to do so. — Max Lucado

Every time we equip the church with a verse, chapter or a story from the Bible, we're really placing another weapon in the hands of the Holy Spirit that He uses to challenge and strengthen the church. I think that's very important. — Max Lucado

Max Lucado Quotes On Inspiring

God is able to accomplish, provide, help, save, keep, subdue... He is able to do what you can't. He already has a plan. God's not bewildered. Go to Him. — Max Lucado

Max Lucado Quotes On Encouraging

All of my sermons become books. I've been accused of having no unpublished thought. I encourage pastors to do that. I think there are so many great sermons that never really get circulation. — Max Lucado

Most of my sermons are inspirational, and I believe people need that encouragement. — Max Lucado

A Christian in his surroundings should encourage everyone to be better, instead of being the one who stoops to be like everyone else. — Max Lucado

I think it's noteworthy that the Almighty didn't act high and mighty. The Holy One wasn't holier-than-thou. The One who knew it all wasn't a know-it-all. The One who made the stars didn't keep his head in them. The One who owns all the stuff of earth never strutted it. — Max Lucado

There is nothing on earth that can satisfy our deepest longing. We long to see God. The leaves of life are rustling with the rumor that we will - and we won't be satisfied until we do. — Max Lucado

Choose satisfaction over salary. Better to be happy with little than miserable with much. — Max Lucado

Tragically, some people believe they are going to heaven when they die just because a few drops of water were sprinkled over their heads a few weeks after their birth.

I think there is, not in the sense that I enjoy it, but that it's an important question. It's the question, "Does the presence of pain mean God doesn't care? Does God not love me anymore?"

He promises a lamp unto our feet, not a crystal ball into the future. — Max Lucado

After a hard day scrambling to find your way around in the world, it's assuring to come home to a place you know. God can be equally familiar to you.
