Prayer

12:51 AM

"If the Christian does not allow prayer to drive sin out of his life, sin will drive prayer out of his life. Like light and darkness, the two cannot dwell together." - M.E. Andross

"It is not enough to begin to pray, nor to pray aright; nor is it enough to continue for a time to pray; but we must patiently, believingly, continue in  prayer until we obtain an answer;" -  George Müller

“Time spent alone with God is not wasted.  It changes us; it changes our surroundings; and every Christian who would live the life that counts, and who would have power for service must take time to pray.” - M.E. Andross 

"The word of God is the food by which prayer is nourished and made strong." -  E. M. Bounds 

 "As is the business of tailors to make clothes and cobblers to make shoes, so it is the business of Christians to pray."  - Martin Luther 

"Faith in a prayer-hearing God will make a prayer-loving Christian." - Andrew Murray

“The one concern of the devil is to keep Christians from praying.  He fears nothing from prayerless studies, prayerless work and prayerless religion. He laughs at our toil, mocks at our wisdom, but he trembles when we pray.”  - Samuel Chadwick

When asked how much time he spent in prayer, George Muller's reply was, "Hours every day. But I live in the spirit of prayer. I pray as I walk and when I lie down and when I arise. And the answers are always coming."  Source Unknown.

"Prayer is not overcoming God's reluctance, but laying hold of His willingness." -  Martin Luther.

"You may as soon find a living man that does not breath, as a living Christian that does not pray." - Matthew Henry

"Many Christians backslide...They are unable to stand against the temptations of the world, or of their old nature. They strive to do their best to fight against sin, and to serve God, but they have no strength. They have never really grasped the secret: The Lord Jesus will every day from heaven continue His work in me. But on one condition—the soul must give Him time each day to impart His love and his grace. Time alone with the Lord Jesus each day is the indispensable condition of growth and power." - Andrew Murray (Emphasis added).
