9 Quotes on prayer


  1. “Study universal holiness of life. Your whole usefulness depends on this, for your sermons last but an hour or two; your life preaches all the week. If Satan can only make a covetous minister a lover of praise, of pleasure, of good eating, he has ruined your ministry. Give yourself to prayer, and get your texts, your thoughts, your words from God. Luther spent his best three hours in prayer.” – ROBERT MURRAY MCCHEYNE
  2. What the Church needs to-day is not more machinery or better, not new organizations or more and novel methods, but men whom the Holy Ghost can use — men of prayer, men mighty in prayer. The Holy Ghost does not flow through methods, but through men. He does not come on machinery, but on men. He does not anoint plans, but men — men of prayer. – EM BOUNDS
  3. Prayer – secret, fervent, believing praying – lies at the root of all personal godliness. A competent knowledge of the language where a missionary lives, a mild and winning temper, a heart given up to God in closet religion – these, these are the attainments which, more than all knowledge, or all other gifts, will lift us to become the instruments of God in the great work of human redemption. – CASEY’S BROTHERHOOD, SERAMPORE
  4. You know the value of prayer: it is precious beyond all price. Never, never neglect it. – SIR THOMAS BUXTON
  5. Prayer is the first thing, the second thing, the third thing necessary to a minister. Pray, then, my dear brother; pray, pray, pray. – EDWARD PAYSON
  6. If the anointing which we bear come not from the Lord of hosts, we are deceivers, since only in prayer can we obtain it. Let us continue instant, constant, fervent in supplication. – CHARLES SPURGEON
  7. If some Christians that have been complaining of their ministers had said and acted less before men and had applied themselves with all their might to cry to God for their ministers – had, as it were, risen and stormed heaven with their humble, fervent, and incessant prayers for them – they would have been much more in the way of success. – JONATHAN EDWARDS
  8. Air is not more necessary to the lungs than prayer is to the preacher. It is absolutely necessary for the preacher to pray. It is an absolute necessity that the preacher be prayed for. – EM BOUNDS
  9. If I should neglect prayer but a single day, I should lose a great deal of the fire of faith. – MARTIN LUTHER
