Welcome To The Religion Network!
I'm Lisa Bowman. The Religion Network is an interfaith web site providing inspiration, quotes and religious resources. This Home Page is changed every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. You are warmly
invited to read every quote posted for each theme, or simply to read those that interest you. They are
offered in the belief that inspiration can be found in all spiritual faiths, and that finding the commonality
in religions is more important than pointing up the differences. Religion is precious gift that blesses the
individual and uplifts the community. However you worship, I hope this site enhances your journey. Let
us meet regularly and build a spiritual network. If you'd like to know my story, click on biography.

You can talk to God because God listens. Your voice matters
in heaven. He takes you very seriously. When you enter his
presence, the attendants turn to you to hear your voice. No
need to fear that you will be ignored. Even if you stammer or
stumble, even if what you have to say impresses no one, it im-
presses God--and he listens. He listens to the gruff confession
of the death-row inmate. When alcoholic begs for mercy, when
the spouse seeks guidance, when the businessman
steps off the street into the chapel, God listens.

Intently. Carefully.
The prayers are honored as precious jewels...Your words do not
stop until they reach the very throne of God.

...Your prayers move God to change the world.

Excerpted from "For These Tough Times,"
by Max Lucado
W Publishing Group, 2006

He who planted the ear, does He not hear?
He who formed the eye, does He not see?

Blessed is the man whom You chasten, O Lord,
And whom You teach out of Your Law;

For the Lord will not abandon His people,
Nor will He forsake His inheritance.

Psalm 94: 9, 12, 14
New American Standard Bible


Hashem designated a large fish to swallow
Jonah, and Jonah remained in the fish's
innards for three days and three nights.
Jonah prayed to Hashem, his God, from
the fish's innards, and said:

"I called in my distress, to Hashem,
and he answered me;
From the belly of the grave I cried
out -- You heard my voice..."

Jonah 2: 1-3
The Stone Edition Tanach

Love Him, talk to Him every second of your life,
in activity and in silence, with deep prayer, with
the unceasing desire of your heart; and you shall
see the screen of delusion melt away. He who is
playing hide-and-seek in the beauty of flowers,
in souls, in noble passions, in dreams, shall come
forth and say, "You and I have been apart for a
long time, because I desired that you give Me your
your love willingly. You are made in My image,
and I wanted to see if you would use your
freedom to give Me your love."

Paramahansa Yogananda

And now, the Last Word:

God's care for us is measured
in immensities, not minimums.

From "The Angel's LIttle Instruction Book,"

Bonus quote:

A cheerful frame of mind enables a tea kettle
to sing though in hot water up to its nose.
