Lauren Oliver
“Lord, help us root our feet to the earth
And our eyes to the road
And always remember the fallen angels
Who, attempting to soar,
Were seared instead by the sun and, wings melting,
Came crashing back to the sea.
Lord, help root my eyes to the earth
And stay my eyes to the road
So I may never stumble.

-Psalm 24 (From "Prayer and Study," The Book of Shhh)”
Lauren Oliver, Delirium

“Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you.”
Anonymous, The Holy Bible: King James Version

Alan M. Turing
“I am not very impressed with theological arguments whatever they may be used to support. Such arguments have often been found unsatisfactory in the past. In the time of Galileo it was argued that the texts, 'And the sun stood still... and hasted not to go down about a whole day' (Joshua x. 13) and 'He laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not move at any time' (Psalm cv. 5) were an adequate refutation of the Copernican theory.”
Alan Turing, Computing machinery and intelligence

“One thing I ask of the LORD, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple.”

George MacDonald
“I am always hearing. . . the sound of a far off song. I do not exactly know where it is, or what it means; and I don't hear much of it, only the odour of its music, as it were, flitting across the great billows of the ocean outside this air in which I make such a storm; but what I do hear, is quite enough to make me able to bear the cry from the drowning ship. So it would you if you could hear it.'
'No it wouldn't,' returned Diamond stoutly. 'For they wouldn't hear the music of the far-away song; and if they did, it wouldn't do them any good. You see you and I are not going to be drowned, and so we might enjoy it.'
'But you have never heard the psalm, and you don't know what it is like. Somehow, I can't say how, it tells me that all is right; that it is coming to swallow up all the cries. . . . It wouldn't be the song it seems if it did not swallow up all their fear and pain too, and set them singing it themselves with all the rest.”
George MacDonald, At the Back of the North Wind

Philip Yancey
“As the books of Job, Jeremiah, and Habakkuk clearly show, God has a high threshold of tolerance for what appropriate to say in a prayer. God can "handle" my unsuppressed rage. I may well find that my vindictive feelings need God's correction - but only by taking those feelings to God will I have the opportunity for correction and healing.”
Philip Yancey, The Bible Jesus Read

Ronie Kendig, Hawk

Enock Maregesi
“Ukipata matatizo kumbuka kwamba Yesu alipata matatizo pia, na kutokana na matatizo hayo mimi na wewe tulipata uhuru. Soma Biblia. Soma nyimbo katika kitabu cha Zaburi zinazomsifu Mungu katika kipindi cha matatizo. Funga na kuomba ukiamini kwamba mapenzi ya Mungu kwetu ni huru, yasiyokuwa na masharti yoyote. Toa msamaha kwa waliokukosea. Ni kitu cha muhimu kujilimbikizia imani katika kipindi cha amani, ili matatizo yakitokea usiweze kuyumba.”
Enock Maregesi

Felix Wantang
“You cannot love God and tolerate evil. Psalm 97:10.”
Felix Wantang, Face to Face Meetings With Jesus Christ: The Language of Heaven

“The Lord makes firm the steps of the one who delights in him; though he may stumble, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with his hand.”
Anonymous, Holy Bible: New International Version

“This Psalm is that from which the Devil dared to tempt our Lord Jesus Christ: allow us to therefore attend thereto, that thus armed, we could also be enabled to resist Satan.”
Psalm 91 Reading From Bible

“Psalm 91 is maybe one among|one amongst one in every of the foremost relevant passages in all the scriptures, also known by memory by an oversized number of Christians. However, despite its enormous familiarity, it’s unfortunately often in the course of erroneous interpretations that prevent actuality meaning from being taken in light of the religion that it truly possesses.”

Sneha Subramanian Kanta
“I recited segments of Rilke's verses
as psalm interludes for a woman
without a map, welcomed by blurry
mornings with fogged windowpanes.”
