It is not possible that you can turn to God in prayer without receiving help.

It is not so true that "prayer changes things" as that prayer changes me and I change things. God has so constituted things that prayer on the basis of Redemption alters the way in which a man looks at things. Prayer is not a question of altering things externally, but of working wonders in a man's disposition.

It is not well for a man to pray cream and live skim milk.

It is only when the whole heart is gripped with the passion of prayer that the life-giving fire descends, for none but the earnest man gets access to the ear of God.

It is only when we pray for something according to the will of God that we have the promise of being heard and answered.

It is quite useless knocking at the door of heaven for earthly comfort. It's not the sort of comfort they supply there.

It is the will of our heavenly Father that we should come to Him freely and confidently and make known our desires to Him, just as we would have our children come freely and of their own accord and speak to us about the things they would like to have.

It is vain to ask of the gods what man is capable of supplying for himself.

It is vain to expect our prayers to be heard if we do not strive as well as pray.

Jesus Christ is a God whom we approach without pride, and before whom we humble ourselves without despair.

Jesus is moved to happiness every time He sees that you appreciate what He has done for you. Grip His pierced hand and say to Him, "I thank Thee, Savior, because Thou hast died for me." Thank Him likewise for all the other blessings He has showered upon you from day to day. It brings joy to Jesus.

Jesus taught that perseverance is the essential element of prayer. Men must be in earnest when they kneel at God's footstool. Too often we get faint-hearted and quit praying at the point when we ought to begin. We let go at the very point where we should hold on strongest. Our prayers are weak because they are not impassioned by an unfailing and resistless will.

Just as an earthly father knows what is best for his children's welfare, so does God take into consideration the particular needs of His human family, and meets them out of His wonderful storehouse.

Keep us, Lord, so awake in the duties of our calling that we may sleep in thy peace and wake in thy glory.

Leave not off praying to God: for either praying will make thee leave off sinning; or continuing in sin will make thee desist from praying.

Let it be your business every day, in the secrecy of the inner chamber, to meet the holy God. You will be repaid for the trouble it may cost you. The reward will be sure and rich.

Let me burn out for God ... prayer is the great thing. Oh, that I may be a man of prayer!

Let not him who prays, suffer his tongue to outstrip his heart; nor presume to carry a message to the throne of grace, while that stays behind.

Let our prayers, like the ancient sacrifices, ascend morning and evening. Let our days begin and end with God.

Let prayer be the key of the morning and the bolt at night.
