    Meditation quotes by:    

Prayer that is born of meditation upon the Word of God is the prayer that soars upward most easily to God's listening ears.

    Author: R.A. Torrey

It is not mere reading, but meditation -- "meditation all the day," as the Psalmist says -- which extracts the sweetness and the power out of Scripture.

    Author: James Stalker

Do not lose yourself in your everyday work and activities. Rather, lose yourself in God. When you are doing work, let your innermost heart be centered on Him. Live in His presence and abide in Him. Then your work will follow you into eternity, and you will reap a rich harvest.

    Author: Basilea Schlink

When we find our souls at all declining, it is best to raise them up presently by some awakening meditations, such as of the presence of God, of the strict reckoning we are to make, of the infinite love of God in Christ and the fruits of it, of the excellency of a Christian's calling, of the short and uncertain time of this life, of how little good all those things that steal away our hearts will do us before long, and of how it shall be for ever with us hereafter, as we spend this short time well or ill. The more we make way for such considerations to sink into our hearts, the more we shall rise nearer to that state of soul which we shall enjoy in heaven.

    Author: Richard Sibbes

Continued meditation brings great profit to the soul. Passant and transient thoughts are more pleasant, but not so profitable. Deliberate meditation is of most use because it secures the return of the thoughts.

    Author: Thomas Manton

The end of study is information, and the end of meditation is practice, or a work upon the affections. Study is like a winter sun, that shines, but warms not: but meditation is like a blowing upon the fire, where we do not mind the blaze, but the heat. The end of study is to hoard up truth; but of meditation to lay it forth in conference or holy conversation.

    Author: Thomas Manton

What is the reason there is so much preaching and so little practice? For want of meditation.... Constant thoughts are operative, and musing makes the fire burn. Green wood is not kindled by a flash or spark, but by constant blowing.

    Author: Thomas Manton

Meditation is love's nourishment.

    Author: Jack Hyles

The greatest single distinguishing feature of the omnipotence of God is that our imagination gets lost thinking about it.

    Author: Blaise Pascal

The more you read the Bible; and the more you meditate on it, the more you will be astonished with it.

    Author: Charles Spurgeon

When we find a man meditating on the words of God, my friends, that man is full of boldness and is successful.

    Author: D.L. Moody

Now, as old Dr. Bonner, of Glasgow, said, "The Lord didn't show Joshua how to use the sword, but He told him how he should meditate on the Lord day and night, and then he would have good success."

    Author: D.L. Moody
