"What a man is on his knees before God in secret, that will he be
before men: that much and no more." -Fred Mitchell

"Whether we like it or not, asking is the rule of the Kingdom. If you
may have everything by asking in His Name, and nothing without
asking, I beg you to see how absolutely vital prayer is." -C. H. Spurgeon

"Prayer - secret, fervent, believing prayer - lies at the root of all
personal godliness." -William Carey

"There is absolutely no substitute for this secret communion with
God. The public Church services, or even the family altar, cannot
take the place of the 'closet' prayer. We must deliberately seek to
meet with God absolutely alone..." - Gordon Cove

"Prayer meetings are dead affairs when they are merely asking
sessions; there is adventure, hope and life when they are believing
sessions, and the faith is corporately, practically and deliberately
affirmed." - Norman Grubb

"I want deliberately to encourage this mighty longing after God.
The lack of it has brought us to our present low estate. The stiff
and wooden quality about our religious lives is a result of our lack
of holy desire. Complacency is a deadly foe of all spiritual growth.
Acute desire must be present or there will be no manifestation of
Christ to His people. He waits to be wanted. Too bad that with
many of us He waits so long, so very long, in vain." - A. W. Tozer

"Out of a very intimate acquaintance with D. L. Moody, I wish to
testify that he was a far greater pray-er than he was preacher.
Time and time again, he was confronted by obstacles that seemed
insurmountable, but he always knew the way to overcome all
difficulties. He knew the way to bring to pass anything that needed
to be brought to pass. He knew and believed in the deepest depths
of his soul that nothing was too hard for the Lord, and that prayer
could do anything that God could do. " - R. A. Torrey.

"All great soul-winners have been men of much and mighty prayer,
and all great revivals have been preceded and carried out by
persevering, prevailing knee-work in the closet." - Samuel Logan Brengle
