How to use devout in a sentence?

  1. Ralph Waldo Emerson:

    I awoke with devout thanksgiving for my friends.

  2. Jill Biden:

    I think Joe's faith is so strong, it's something that I think he got from his mother, who was a very devout Catholic. Joe is really devout, and he never misses a Sunday service.

  3. Mary Baker Eddy:

    Audible prayer can never do the works of spiritual understanding, which regenerates; but silent prayer, watchfulness, and devout obedience enable us to follow Jesus example. Long prayers, superstition, and creeds clip the strong pinions of love, and clothe religion in human forms. Whatever materializes worship hinders man's spiritual growth and keeps him from demonstrating his power over error.

  4. Saint Augustine:

    Hence, a devout Christian must avoid astrologers and all impious soothsayers, especially when they tell the truth, for fear of leading his soul into error by consorting with demons and entangling himself with the bonds of such association.

  5. Marcus Aelius Aurelius:

    To them that ask, where have you seen the gods, or how do you know for certain there are gods, that you are so devout in their worship I answer Neither have I ever seen my own soul, and yet I respect and honor it.
