SPECIAL: Prayer Changes Your Brain in 4 Amazing Ways

1. "When you were born, you cried and everybody else was happy. The only question that matters is this - when you die, will you be happy when everybody else is crying?"

2. "I've got to push everything out of my mind save the name of Jesus. I say His name over and over again, for as long as fifteen minutes, until I find my soul suspended in what the ancient Celtic Christians called a 'thin place' — a state where the boundary between heaven and earth, divine and human, dissolves. You could say that I use the name of Jesus as my koan."

3. "Going to heaven is like going to Philadelphia … There are many ways … It doesn't make any difference how we go there. We all end up in the same place."

ALERT: When Do You Think Christ Is Returning? Vote Now

4. "Most of us are tiptoeing through life so we can reach death safely. We should be praying, 'If I should wake before I die ...' Life can get away from you."

5. "If there wasn't any heaven or any hell, I would still surrender to Jesus."

6. "Know that if you die in Christ, you will be more alive than ever before."
