Quotes on Prayer

Prayer is simply a two-way conversation between you and God. — Billy Graham

Each time, before you intercede, be quiet first, and worship God in His glory. Think of what He can do, and how He delights to hear the prayers of His redeemed people. Think of your place and privilege in Christ, and expect great things!  ― Andrew Murray

We can do nothing without prayer. All things can be done by importunate prayer. It surmounts or removes all obstacles, overcomes every resisting force and gains its ends in the face of invincible hindrances. — E. M. Bounds
 
The goal of prayer is the ear of God, a goal that can only be reached by patient and continued and continuous waiting upon Him, pouring out our heart to Him and permitting Him to speak to us. Only by so doing can we expect to know Him, and as we come to know Him better we shall spend more time in His presence and find that presence a constant and ever-increasing delight. — E. M. Bounds
 
Nobody ever got anything from God on the grounds that he deserved it. Mankind deserves only punishment and death. So if God answers prayer it’s because God is good. From His goodness, His lovingkindness, His good-natured benevolence, God does it! That’s the source of everything. — A. W. Tozer
 
Once more, Never think that you can live to God by your own power or strength; but always look to and rely on him for assistance, yes, for all strength and grace. — David Brainerd
 
I live in the spirit of prayer. I pray as I walk about, when I lie down and when I rise up. And the answers are always coming. Thousands and tens of thousands of times have my prayers been answered. When once I am persuaded that a thing is right and for the glory of God, I go on praying for it until the answer comes. — George Muller
 
Pray at all times in the Spirit with every prayer and request, and stay alert in this with all perseverance and intercession for all the saints. Pray also for me, that the message may be given to me when I open my mouth to make known with boldness the mystery of the gospel. For this I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I might be bold enough in Him to speak as I should. — Paul, a first-century Christ-follower, in Ephesians 6:18-20
 
Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses every thought, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. — Paul, in Philippians 4:6-7
 
Whatever you ask in My name [lit, “according to My will”], I will do it so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it. — Jesus, in John 14:13-14
