Prayer Mentoring – Random Quotes Part 2

J. Hudson Taylor

“The prayer power has never been tried to its full capacity. If we want to see mighty wonders of divine power and grace wrought in the place of weakness, failure and disappointment, let us answer God’s standing challenge, “Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things which thou knowest not!'” J. Hudson Taylor

“No learning can make up for the failure to pray. No earnestness, no diligence, no study, no gifts will supply its lack.” E.M. Bounds

“Satan trembles when he sees the weakest Christian on his knees.”  William Cowper

“If the church wants a better pastor, it only needs to pray for the one it has.”

“Prayer is the real work, Evangelism is just the mopping up.”

“Prayer will make a man cease from sin, or sin will entice a man to cease from prayer.”  John Bunyon

“He who has learned to pray has learned the greatest secret of a holy and happy life.”  William Law

“Prayer is not overcoming God’s reluctance, but laying hold of His willingness.”  Martin Luther.

“The one concern of the devil is to keep Christians from praying.  He fears nothing from prayerless studies, prayerless work and prayerless religion. He laughs at our toil, mocks at our wisdom, but he trembles when we pray.”  Samuel Chadwick

My Comments: Which one of these do you like best? I really like them all but the one that I really really like is by Martin Luther. Our God is a “YES” God. By that I mean that He delights in saying yes to the prayers of His children. He is willing to answer. Are we willing to ask? Are we willing to learn to pray according to His will not ours? Are we willing yo abide daily in Him? And by “we” I mean “me”.

I’m just sayin’!

  1. This reminds me of hearing you and Linda talk about being “yes” parents. I love thinking about how God delights in answering my prayers. It’s interesting how much of your ponderings relate to what Jesse and I are learning in our UofLife prayer class. 🙂

  2. Rather than “which one do you like best?”. Perhaps the more important question should be “which one looks best like your prayer life?”. Hmmmm. Unfortunately I do resemble a quote or two that’s been posted in the 2 parts to date. Boy have I got work to do to remedy that!

  3. As I read these I thought about what GOD says in 2 Chronicles 7:14″if my people who are called by MY name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” Sooo I have to ask myself how is the attitude of my heart when I seek HIS face? I have to confess my heart is not always right when I pray but as I humble myself the Holy Spirit often convicts me of things I did not even know were there.
    Jim Cymbala has a new book “Spirit Rising” and oh the answered prayers of a people seeking HIS face.
