Managing Monday with Corrie ten Boom – take 3

Posted by on Nov 20, 2017 in Blog | 2 comments

Corrie ten Boom (1892-1983) is remembered for her imprisonment in the Ravensbruck concentration camp for the assistance she and her family provided to help Jewish people escape from the Nazi Holocaust. Her story is told in The Hiding Place – a book which continues to encourage and inspire many. Three of her key themes were the futility of worry, the importance of forgiveness and the power of prayer. Her personal experience adds enormous credibility to her comments. Today we look at a few of the things she said about prayer.

  • Prayer is the key for the day; the lock for the night. Corrie ten Boom
  • As wings are to a bird, and sails to a ship, so prayer is to the soul. Corrie ten Boom
  • Keep looking up and kneeling down. Corrie ten Boom
  • God does not have problems. Only plans. Corrie ten Boom
  • Don’t bother to give God instructions, just report for duty. Corrie ten Boom
  • Is prayer your steering wheel or your spare tyre? Corrie ten Boom

As always, nice chatting…
