Prayer is the longing of the soul to hold communion with the Most High, the desire of the heart to obtain blessings at His hands.
~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon
I had rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.
~ Thomas Lye
Prayer is not overcoming God’s reluctance, but laying hold of His willingness.
~ Martin Luther
Furnish thyself with arguments from the promises to enforce thy prayers, and make them prevalent with God. The promises are the ground of faith, and faith, when strengthened, will make thee fervent, and such fervency ever speeds and returns with victory out of the field of prayer…. The mightier any is in the Word, the more mighty he will be in prayer.
~ William Gurnall
Prayer is not appointed for the furnishing of God with the knowledge of what we need, but it is designed as a confession to Him of our sense of the need. In this, as in everything, God’s thoughts are not as ours. God requires that His gifts should be sought for. He designs to be honoured by our asking, just as He is to be thanked by us after He has bestowed His blessing.
~ Arthur W. Pink
