“Most Christians want to pray but don’t how. They are unable to carry on a simple, sustained, satisfying conversation with God. Thus, after a few minutes in prayer, they run out of things to say, get frustrated, and give up. Sound familiar?”

~ Dr. Steve Gaines, Pray Like It Matters, xi.

No man is greater than his prayer life. leonardravenhill

The pastor who is not praying is playing.

The people who are not praying are straying.

We have many organizers, but few agonizers; many players and payers, few prayers; many singers, few clingers; lots of pastors, few wrestlers; many fears, few tears; much fashion, little passion; many interferers, few intercessors; many writers, but few fighters.

Failing here, we fail everywhere.”

~ Leonard Ravenhill

“Prayer can never be in excess.”

~ C. H. Spurgeon

The Book of Acts contains as least 30 references to prayer in many settings. The local church rises or falls with its praying. If you ask the average  member, he will say, “No, the church rises or falls with its preaching.” Preaching is important. But praying was behind the apostles preaching in the Book of Acts. You’ll find that the Apostle Paul was a man of prayer. Peter was a man of prayer. The early church believed in prayer. The local church and its ministry will rise or fall with its prayer life.

Wesley L. Duewel, in his book, Ablaze for God writes:

All Christians believe in the duty of some prayer each day. Most, however, have an ordinary prayer life except in emergencies. Too often they have never realized the thrill and excitement of communion with Jesus and prevailing in prayer for others (183).

 

Leonard Ravenhill, in his book, Why Revival Tarries, wrote:

Poverty-stricken as the church is today in many things, she is the most stricken here, in the place of prayer. We have many organizers, but few agonizers; many players and payers, few prayers; many singers, few clingers; lots of pastors, few wrestlers; many fears, few tears; much fashion, little passion; many interferers, few intercessors; many writers, but few fighters. Failing here, we fail everywhere (p. 23)

The spiritual history of a mission or church is written in its prayer life!
