Quotes on Prayer! IV
May there be a blessing found in these words for all who reads them, Amen.
There is no power like that of prevailing prayer——of Abraham pleading for Sodom, Jacob wrestling in the stillness of the night, Moses standing in the breach, Hannah intoxicated with sorrow, David heartbroken with remorse and grief, Jesus in sweat and blood. Add to this list from the records of the church your personal observation and experience, and always there is cost of passion unto blood. Such prayer prevails. It turns ordinary mortals into men of power. It brings power. It brings fire. It brings rain. It brings God.

Don’t pray when it rains if you don’t pray when the sun shines.

We pray with words until the words are cut off and we are left in a state of wonder.
Isaac the Syrian

Who rises from prayer a better man, his prayer is answered.
