Prayer Mentoring – Random Quotes from Men Who Knew the Value of Prayer
I love really good quotes. Over the next few weeks I’ll be sharing some random quotes about prayer from a wide variety of people.
“If I fail to spend two hours in prayer each morning, the devil gets the victory through the day. I have so much business I cannot get on without spending three hours daily in prayer. Martin Luther
“You can do more than pray after you have prayed; but you can never do more than pray until you have prayed.” A.J. Gordon
“God does nothing except in response to believing prayer.” John Wesley
“One should never initiate anything that he cannot saturate with prayer.”
“Men may spurn our appeals, reject our message, oppose our arguments, despise our persons, but they are helpless against our prayers.” Sidlow Baxter
“Prayer is where the action is.” John Wesley
“Satan does not care how many people read about prayer if only he can keep them from praying. Paul E. Billheimer
“Don’t pray when you feel like it. Have an appointment with the Lord and keep it. A man is powerful on his knees.” Corrie ten Boom
My Comments: Which one of these do you like? Which one grabbed your attention? I like the last one by Corrie ten Boom. Most of the time I don’t necessarily feel like praying. If I only prayed when I felt like it then I would not pray much at all. I have several prayer appointments during the week that right now I do a pretty good job of keeping. I hope to develop more. Once I start praying it becomes more than just an appointment with God. It’s more like us having father/son time. But I have to be intentional about making it happen or it won’t happen.
I’m just sayin’!
