“Prayer often avails where everything else fails. How utterly all of Monica’s efforts entreaties failed with her son, but her prayers prevailed with God, and the dissolute youth became St. Augustine, the mighty man of God. By prayer the bitterest enemies of the gospel have become its most valiant defenders, the greatest scoundrels the truest sons of God, and the vilest women the purest saints. Oh, the power of prayer to reach down, down, down where hope itself seems vain, and lift men and women up, up, up into fellowship with and likeness to God. It is simply wonderful. How little we appreciate this marvelous weapon.”

~ R. A. TorreyHow to Prayer, (1909 Edition, 28)

“There are few conversions in this world unless in connection with some one’s prayers. I formerly thought that no human being had anything to do with my own conversion, for I was not converted in church or Sunday-school, or in personal conversation with anyone. I was awakened in the middle of the night and converted. As far as I can remember I had not the slightest thought of being converted, or of anything of that character when I went to bed and fell asleep; but I was awakened in the middle of the night and converted probably inside of five minutes. A few minutes before I was about as near eternal perdition as one gets. I had one foot over the brink and was trying to get the one over. I say I thought no human being had anything to do with it, but I had forgotten my mother’s prayers, and I afterwards learned that one of my college classmates had chosen me as one to pray for until I was saved.”

~ R. A. TorreyHow to Prayer, (1909 Edition, 27-28).

“Groanings which cannot be uttered are often prayers which cannot be refused.” 

~ Charles Spurgeon

“Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Christ Jesus, greets you, always struggling on your behalf in his prayers, that you may stand mature and fully assured in all the will of God” (Colossians 4.12).

Epaphras…

  • Was a church member of the church of Colossae.
  • Was  a follower of Jesus.
  • Was a prayer warrior who prayed that his brothers and sisters in the Colossians church were spiritually mature and knowledgeable of God’s will

Let us all pray and be like Epaphras!

“All vital praying makes a drain on a man’s vitality. True intercession is a sacrifice, a bleeding sacrifice.”

~ J.H. Jowett

“Hear me clearly. I have never seen successful and sustaining change take place in a church without prayer. Never. Not once!”

“The coming revival must begin with a great revival of prayer. It is in the closet, with the door shut, that the sound of abundance of rain will first be heard. An increase of secret prayer with ministers will be the sure harbinger of blessing.”

“It is the tragedy of this hour that many people seem to think that if they know the mechanics of serving God, that is all that is necessary.  May this thought be far removed from your minds.  No service is acceptable unto God unless it is rendered upon the wings of prayer.  Therefore, may we withdraw ourselves to the secret place and there pray until we have an answer.”

~ Dr. Lee Roberson, Chapter 17, Some Golden Daybreak

“A dynamic praying church must be built from the inside out, employing all four levels of prayer: the secret closet, the family altar, small group praying and finally, the congregational setting.”

~ Richard Burr

“I fear the prayers of John Knox more than all the assembled armies of Europe”
