  • Quotes to consider about prayer

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

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

    "Whether we like it or not, asking is the rule of the Kingdom. If you

    may have everything by asking in His Name, and nothing without

    asking, I beg you to see how absolutely vital prayer is."
    -C. H. Spurgeon

    "Prayer - secret, fervent, believing prayer - lies at the root of all

    personal godliness."
    -William Carey

    "There is absolutely no substitute for this secret communion with

    God. The public Church services, or even the family altar, cannot

    take the place of the 'closet' prayer. We must deliberately seek to

    meet with God absolutely alone..."
    - Gordon Cove

    "Prayer meetings are dead affairs when they are merely asking

    sessions; there is adventure, hope and life when they are believing

    sessions, and the faith is corporately, practically and deliberately

    affirmed." - Norman Grubb

    "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

    NOTE: What can a person do if they realize that they do not long after God as they know they should. We can confess this sin to God and then ask Him to give us a longing for Him. No matter what the problem, Jesus is the answer.

    "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."
    - Samuel Logan Brengle
