Make time to pray. “The great freight and passenger trains are never too busy to stop for fuel. No matter how congested the yards may be, no matter how crowded the schedules are, no matter how many things demand the attention of the trainmen, those trains always stop for fuel.” M.E. Andross
When prayer has become secondary, or incidental, it has lost its power. Those who are conspicuously men of prayer are those who use prayer as they use food, or air, or light, or money.” M.E. Andross
“If the Christian does not allow prayer to drive sin out of his life, sin will drive prayer out of his life. Like light and darkness, the two cannot dwell together.” M.E. Andross
“Those persons who know the deep peace of God, the unfathomable peace that passeth all understanding, are always men and women of much prayer.” R. A. Torrey
“Therefore, whether the desire for prayer is on you or not, get to your closet at the set time; shut yourself in with God; wait upon Him; seek His face; realize Him; pray.” R. F. Horton
My Comments: Love the first quote by M. E. Andross – he was not someone that I was familiar with before I came across these. Is it no wonder that I, that we, that the church seems to so often be running on fumes? We get so busy that we forget to stop and refuel and then find ourselves out of gas. More and more I am realizing not just that I get to pray but that I must pray.
I’m just sayin’!
