PRAYER

John Bunyan on Prayer,  Three part series we posted earlier this year


  • Groanings which cannot be uttered are often prayers which cannot be refused. — Spurgeon
  • God shapes the world by prayer. The more praying there is in the world the better the world will be, the mightier the forces against evil. — E.M. Bounds
  • It is possible to move men, through God, by prayer alone. — Hudson Taylor
  • Worship and intercession must go together; the one is impossible without the other. Intercession means that we rouse ourselves up to get the mind of Christ about the one for whom we pray. — Oswald Chambers
  • Prayer is the exercise of drawing on the grace of God. — Oswald Chambers
  • Prayer is not monologue, but dialogue; God’s voice is its most essential part. Listening to God’s voice is the secret of the assurance that he will listen to mine. — Andrew Murray
  • To desire revival… and at the same time to neglect (personal) prayer and devotion is to wish one way and walk another. — A.W. Tozer
  • God looks not at the oratory of your prayers, how elegant they may be; nor at the geometry of your prayers, how long they may be; nor at the arithmetic of your prayers, how many they may be; not at logic of your prayers, how methodical they may be; but the sincerity of them he looks at. – Thomas Brooks
