"Satan dreads nothing but prayer. The one concern of the devil is to keep the saints from praying. He fears nothing from prayerless studies, prayerless work, prayerless religion. He laughs at our toil, mocks at our wisdom, but trembles when we pray."
~ Samuel Chadwick
"How few find time for prayer! There is time for everything else, time to sleep and time to eat, time to read the newspaper and the novel, time to visit friends, time for everything else under the sun, but not time for prayer, the most important of all things, the one great essential!"
~ Oswald Smith
"It is not words which God pays attention to, but heart-groans and tears!"
~ Arthur W. Pink
"The wimpy Christian does not feel the convictions that motivate him to cry out to God. This sort of thing is completely foreign to his casual way of thinking. He likes to stay cool, calm and undisturbed. If he attended the prayer meetings, he might feel a little of God's heart, and what would that do to his smooth, delicate constitution? It may make him feel a trifle uncomfortable about watching his next unclean movie!"
~ Colin Campbell
"The absence of prayer lessens all the life-forces of the soul, cripples faith, sets aside holy living shuts out heaven. In holy Scripture, the line is sharply drawn between praying saints and non-praying saints."
~ E. M. Bounds
"Prayer does not fit us for the greater work; prayer is the greater work."
~ Oswald Chambers
"Praying saints are the only saints who have influence with God, the only kind of saints to whom God commits Himself and His Gospel. Praying saints are the only saints in which the Holy Spirit dwells, for the Holy Spirit and prayer go hand-in-hand. The Holy Spirit never descends upon prayerless saints. He never fills them, He never empowers them. There is nothing whatever in common between the Spirit of God and saints who do not pray. The spirit dwells only in a prayer atmosphere."
~ E. M. Bounds
"No one is a firmer believer in the power of prayer than the devil; not that he practices it, but he suffers from it."
~ Guy H. King
"The greatest tragedy of life is not unanswered prayer, buy unoffered prayer."
~ F. B. Meyer
"I have been driven many times to my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go."
~ Abraham Lincoln
