    "What a man is on his knees before God in secret, that will he be

    before men: that much and no more." -Fred Mitchell


    "We must deliberately seek to

    meet with God absolutely alone, and to secure such aloneness

    with God we are bidden to 'enter into thy closet.' God absolutely

    insists on this 'closet'-communion with Himself. One reason, no

    doubt, that He demands it, is to test our sincerity. There is no test

    for the soul like solitude. Do you shrink from solitude? Perhaps

    the cause for your neglect of the 'closet' is a guilty conscience?

    You are afraid to enter into the solitude. You know that however

    cheerful you appear to be you are not really happy. You surround

    yourself with company lest, being alone, truth should invade your

    delusion..."
    - Gordon Cove


    "I want deliberately to encourage this mighty longing after God.

    The lack of it has brought us to our present low estate. The stiff

    and wooden quality about our religious lives is a result of our lack

    of holy desire. Complacency is a deadly foe of all spiritual growth.

    Acute desire must be present or there will be no manifestation of

    Christ to His people. He waits to be wanted. Too bad that with

    many of us He waits so long, so very long, in vain."


    - A. W. Tozer


    "I should like to allude to a few points in the character of Mr.

    Hudson Taylor which impressed me personally, and which I think

    had something to do with the blessing that God granted to his

    efforts on behalf of this country (China). First his prayerfulness; he

    was of necessity a busy man, but he always regarded prayer itself

    as in reality the most needful and important part of the work.."

    - D. E. Hoste


    "Out of a very intimate acquaintance with D. L. Moody, I wish to

    testify that he was a far greater pray-er than he was preacher.

    Time and time again, he was confronted by obstacles that seemed

    insurmountable, but he always knew the way to overcome all

    difficulties. He knew the way to bring to pass anything that needed

    to be brought to pass. He knew and believed in the deepest depths

    of his soul that nothing was too hard for the Lord, and that prayer

    could do anything that God could do. " - R. A. Torrey.


    "All great soul-winners have been men of much and mighty prayer,

    and all great revivals have been preceded and carried out by

    persevering, prevailing knee-work in the closet."

    Nice qoutes; the tozer one I like best. Its really a shame that Jesus does wait, sometimes right to the bell before we reach out. And some, not at all.
