  • Quotes on prayer

    "Are you living for the things you are praying for?" - Austin Phelps

    "A prayerless man is proud and independent, and any church that

    neglects corporate prayer is sadly no better. Only God's humble

    and needy children take the time to pray. Everyone else is just

    going through the motions and naively trusting in their own

    -David Smithers

    "We need a baptism of clear seeing. We desperately need seers

    who can see through the mist--Christian leaders with prophetic

    vision. Unless they come soon it will be too late for this generation.

    And if they do come we will no doubt crucify a few of them in the

    name of our worldly orthodoxy."
    -A. W. Tozer

    "The time factor in prayer is very important. In the exercise of

    prayer God is not tied to our clocks. Neither is He at the other end

    of the phone to receive and answer our two-minute calls. It takes

    time to know the mind of God, to shut out the material things of

    earth and to be wholly abandoned."
    -Hugh C. C. McCullough

    "He can do all things who prays well. All soul-winners have

    conquered on their knees. Wherever the secret of prevailing prayer

    is found, something supernatural will come to pass."
    - G. F. Oliver

    "No system of doctrine, preaching and worship which fails to

    develop prayer, faith, spiritual labor, and success in converting

    souls from sin, can long have the face to claim to be the religion of

    Jesus Christ!"
    -William W. Patton

    "The true man of God is heartsick, grieved at the worldliness of the

    Church... grieved at the toleration of sin in the Church, grieved at

    the prayerlessness in the Church. He is disturbed that the

    corporate prayer of the Church no longer pulls down the

    strongholds of the devil."
    - Leonard Ravenhill

    "There are different kinds of fire; there is false fire. No one knows

    this better than we do, but we are not such fools as to refuse good

    bank notes because there are false ones in circulation; and

    although we see here and there manifestations of what appears to

    us to be nothing more than mere earthly fire, we nonetheless prize

    and value, and seek for the genuine fire which comes from the altar

    of the Lord."
    - William Booth

    "We must continue in prayer if we are to get an outpouring of the

    Spirit. Christ says there are some things we shall not get, unless

    we pray and fast, yes, "prayer and fasting." We must control the

    flesh and abstain from whatever hinders direct fellowship with God."

    - Andrew Bonar

    "The history of missions is the history of answered prayer. From

    Pentecost to the Haystack meeting in New England and from the

    days when Robert Morrison landed in China to the martyrdom of

    John and Betty Stam, prayer has been the source of power and

    the secret of spiritual triumph."
    - Samuel Zwemer

    "This much is sure in all churches, forgetting party labels; the

    smallest meeting numerically is the prayer-meeting. If weak in

    prayer we are weak everywhere."
    - Leonard Ravenhill

    "Have you noticed how much praying for revival has been going on

    of late - and how little revival has resulted? I believe the problem is

    that we have been trying to substitute praying for obeying, and it

    simply will not work. To pray for revival while ignoring the plain

    precept laid down in Scripture is to waste a lot of words and get

    nothing for our trouble. Prayer will become effective when we stop

    using it as a substitute for obedience."
    - A. W. Tozer
