“My mission is first to the churches.When the churches are aroused to their duty, men of the world will be swept into the Kingdom. A whole church on its knees is irresistible.”~ Evan Roberts

“Funds are low again, hallelujah! That means God trusts us and is willing to leave His reputation in our hands.”

~ C. T. Studd (1860-1931)

“Prayer, it is rightly said, the method of genuine theological research, the method of understanding what and God is. God is spirit and exists at the level of reality where the human heart, or spirit, also exists, serving as the foundation and source of our visible life. It is there that the individual meets with God ‘in spirit and in truth.'”

~ Dallas WillardThe Divine Conspiracy, 194. 

“Beware in your prayers, above everything else, of limiting God, not only by unbelief, but by fancying that you know what He can do. Expect unexpected things ‘above all that we ask or think.'”

~ Andrew Murray

“We have never had any such thing in history as a prayerless revival,” said pastor Greg Laurie in a powerful, encouraging contribution to Faithwire. Pastor Laurie reminds all readers, whether they’re rejoicing or lamenting after this week’s midterm election, that it is people committed to prayer, not elected officials, who can save America.

“We look at the problems in our world and in our nation today, and we might point at different individuals. But let’s notice where God points when a nation breaks down spiritually and morally,” Laurie encourages the reader. He refers to 2 Chronicles 7:14, which says, “if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land…”

“God is saying, ‘It is my people. If my people would live as they ought to live, it would impact a nation. My people need to humble themselves and pray and turn from their wicked ways,’” Laurie explains.

“We must pray,” he continues, “but there also must be repentance from all known sin. We need to turn from our wicked ways. All the prayer in the world won’t make any difference if we have unconfessed sin in our lives.”

“God promises that if we will pray and turn from our wicked ways and humble ourselves, he will heal us,” Laurie adds. “That applies to a broken family. That applies to a church. And that applies to a nation.” What a promise!

Laurie concludes, telling us that God wants to send revival, but we must participate.

For the rest of the post…

“We are too busy to pray, and so we are too busy to have power. We have a great deal of activity, but we accomplish little; many services but few conversions; much machinery but few results.”

Maintaining a persistent prayer life seems more and more difficult in the hustle and bustle of a busy world.

“We know who we are praying to only if we learn it in the Bible. And we know how we should be praying only by getting our vocabulary from the Bible. None of this should be a surprise, since we see this basic dynamic played out in the development of every new human being.”

~ Timothy KellerPrayer: Experiencing Awe and Intimacy with God54-55.

“After saying our prayers, we ought to do something to make them come true.”

~ William Feather (1889-1981)

“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
