Some Thoughts on Prayer

Saturday, January 29th, 2011

“The evangelization of the world in this generation depends first of all upon a revival of prayer.” Rober Speer

“Prayer and missions are as inseparable as faith and works, because it is by prayer that the laborers must be provided. “Pray ye …therefore the Lord of the harvest that He send forth laborers into His harvest.” We think of laborers too often as being just those who have gone out on the fields. Those of us who pray are laborers too, and such laborers are also needed.” Anonymous

“We talk a great deal about ways of doing things. We plan and organize and are willing to work very hard but we do not pray. We are willing to spend the whole afternoon in club meeting, in committee meetings or in social visiting, but cannot take time to pray together. Besides the regular missionary meeting we should have in all of our societies special meetings for prayer.”

“I would rather train ten men to pray than a hundred men to preach.” We cannot all preach, but we ought all be able to pray.” George MacGregor

“Missions begun in prayer, are sustained in prayer and will spread only as those who love them unite in a fellowship of hearts to advance upon their knees.” Mrs. Montgomery

“Believing, intercessory, fervent, loving, undiscouraged and unselfish prayer will win the whole church to sympathy with the great purpose of the Master.”

These were found in the Herald of Gospel Liberty, Vol. 103

My heart is cheered that many young adults have decided to commit quality time to praying early in the day and at other times. I believe we all need to do the same thing. It will raise the spiritual temperature in our hearts and in the lives of those around us.

Won’t you join us in praying!
