Soren Kierkegaard Quotes on Prayers (3 Quotes)
- Prayer does not change God, but it changes him who prays.
- Just as in earthly life lovers long for the moment when they are able to breathe forth their love for each other, to let their souls blend in a soft whisper, so the mystic longs for the moment when in prayer he can, as it were, creep into God.
- The function of prayer is not to influence God, but rather to change the nature of the one who prays.
