The Power of Prayer

The Spirit helps our infirmities by enabling us to understand for who, and what, and how prayer is to be made; and by working . . . in our hearts . . . those thoughts, affections and graces that are required.

Westminster Larger Catechism

The Spirit teaches us, and inclines us, and enables us to pray.

William Jay

Prayer is . . . the great means to procure the graces of which I stand in hourly need.

John Newton

Prayer is that mightiest of all weapons that created natures can wield.

Martin Luther

Prayer is a shield to the soul, a sacrifice to God and a scourge for Satan.

John Bunyan

Prayer is the chief exercise of faith.

PRAYER, THEOLOGY FOR THE PEOPLE Biblical Doctrine, Plainly Stated (William S. Plumer, 1875)

You can measure a man’s progress in religion, by the amount of earnest prayer that he puts up to God. There is no exception to the rule. Show me a man who prays — and his strength and his power cannot by exaggerated. Just give to a man this power of prayer — and you give him almost omnipotence!

 Thomas DeWitt Talmage (1832 – 1902)
