“My God, is any hour so sweet
From blush of morn to evening star,
As that which calls me to Thy feet –
The hour of prayer?”

Charlotte Elliott

“Prayer is the place of refuge for every worry, a foundation for cheerfulness, a source of constant happiness, a protection against sadness.”

St. John Chrysostom

“The spirit of prayer is more precious than treasures of gold and silver.”

John Bunyan

“Prayer is not overcoming God’s reluctance. It is laying hold of His willingness.”

Martin Luther

“If you want that splendid power in prayer, you must remain in loving, living, lasting, conscious, practical, abiding union with the Lord Jesus Christ.”

C. H. Spurgeon

“Prayer is not an exercise. It is the life of the Christian.”

Oswald Chambers

“What wings are to a bird, and sails to a ship, so is prayer to the soul.”

Corrie ten Boom

“We must begin to believe that God, in the mystery of prayer, has entrusted us with a force that can move the Heavenly world, and can bring its power down to earth.”

Andrew Murray
