“All the mighty men (and I will add women) have been men (and women) of prayer. They have differed from one another in many things, but in this they have been alike.”

~ R. A. TorreyHow to Pray (1900), 11

“Why is it,” both ministers and churches are asking, “that the church of Christ makes so little headway against unbelief and error andn sin and worldliness?” Once more we hear God answering, “Neglect of prayer. You have not because you ask not.”

While being interviewed before a boxing match, Mike Tyson was asked for his thoughts on his opponent’s style. Tyson observed. “Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.”

Likewise, everyone has a plan for how they’ll be victorious until adversity comes. Once disorientation hits, all resolved, strength, and composure vanish like a boxer’s two front teeth.

~ John OnwuchewaPrayer65.

“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.”

~ Mother Teresa

Martin Luther said once: “I have so much business I cannot get on without spending three hours daily in prayer.”  

For Luther, the busier he was, the mor he needed to pray. We tend to do the oppossite: We pray less the busier we are.

Luther was right about the importance of prayer and that we need to do more of it.

“If we call upon the Lord, he has promised in His Word to answer, to bring the unsaved to Himself, to pour out His Spirit among us. If we don’t call upon the Lord, He has promised nothing–nothing at all, It’s as simple as that. No matter what I preach or what we claim to believe in our heads, the future will depend upon our times of prayer. This is the engine that will drive the church.”

~ Jim Cymbala, Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire

O what peace we often forfeit,

O what needless pain we pain,

All because we do not carry

Everything to God in prayer!

~ Joseph Scriven
