“Pray without ceasing.” 1 Thessalonians 5:17

I’ve said it before, and do not apologise for saying it again – prayer must be at the heart of every Christian‘s daily life.

Here are some great quotes about prayer which I’ve come across in the last while – I hope you like them.

  1. “The greatest thing anyone can do for God or man is pray.” S.D. Gordon
  2. “Seven days without prayer makes one weak.”  Allen E. Vartlett
  3. Prayer should not be regarded “as a duty which must be performed, but rather as a privilege to be enjoyed, a rare delight that is always revealing some new beauty.”  E.M. Bounds
  4. “Prayer is not monologue, but dialogue. God’s voice in response to mine is its most essential part.” Andrew Murray
  5. “God does nothing except in response to believing prayer.”  John Wesley 
  6. “If the church wants a better pastor, it only needs to pray for the one it has.”
  7. “Faith in a prayer-hearing God will make a prayer-loving Christian.” Andrew Murray
  8. “Prayer wonderfully clears the vision; steadies the nerves; defines duty; stiffens the purpose; sweetens and strengthens the spirit.”  S.D. Gordon
  9. “We have to pray with our eyes on God, not on the difficulties.” Oswald Chambers
  10. “The word of God is the food by which prayer is nourished and made strong.”  E. M. Bounds
