“The principles don’t change; our understanding of them does.” ~Stephen Covey

“The only real limitation of power is the natural consequences of the principles themselves.” ~Stephen Covey

“Because principles apply to everyone, whether or not why are aware, this limitation is universal. And the more we know of correct principles, the greater is our personal freedom to act wisely.” ~Stephen Covey

“By centering our lives on timeless, unchanging principles, we create a fundamental paradigm of effective living. It is the center that puts all other centers in perspective.” ~Stephen Covey

“We can hone in on great security, guidance, wisdom, and power through our closeness to God.” ~Audrey Rindlisbacher

“Having a divine center goes beyond having a principle center because when we are God centered it is about a relationship. Because of that relationship He can lift us and buoy us up in a way that laws and principles cannot.” ~Audrey Rindlisbacher

We never know how God will answer our prayers, but we can expect that He will get us involved in His plan for the answer. If we are true intercessors, we must be ready to take part in God’s work on behalf of the people for whom we pray.” ~Corrie ten Boom
