"When we go to God by prayer, the devil knows we go to fetch
strength against him, and therefore he opposeth us all he can."
 - Richard Sibbes

"Satan strikes either at the root of faith or at the root of diligence."
 - John Livingstone

"The effectiveness of the prayer program of a church will be in
direct proportion to the depth of the individual prayer life of its
members. Without a deep devotional life on the part of the
participants, the group cannot muster great prayer power."
 - Paul E. Billheimer

"Since the days of Pentecost, has the whole church ever put aside
every other work and waited upon Him for ten days, that the
Spirit’s power might be manifested? We give too much attention to
method and machinery and resources, and too little to the source
of power." -Hudson Taylor

"That, which begins not with prayer, seldom winds up with comfort."
 - John Flavel

"Oh, that my head were waters, and my eyes a fountain of tears,
that I might weep day and night for the slain of the daughter of my
people!" - Jeremiah 9:1

"My soul will weep in secret for your pride; my eyes will weep
bitterly and run down with tears, because the LORD'S flock has
been taken captive." - Jeremiah 13:17

"I have never known a person sweat blood; but I have known a
person pray till the blood started from his nose. And I have known
persons to pray till they were all wet with perspiration, in the
coldest weather in winter. I have known persons pray for hours, till
their strength was all exhausted with the agony of their minds.
Such prayers prevailed with God." – Charles G. Finney

"Christ was in an agony at prayer (Luke 22: 44). Many when they
pray are rather in a lethargy, than in an agony. When they are
about the world they are all fire; when they are at prayer, they are
all Ice." - Thomas Watson

"If I cannot hear 'the sound of rain' long before the rain falls, and
then go out to some hilltop of the Spirit, as near to my God as I
can and have faith to wait there with my face between my knees,
though six times or sixty times I am told 'there is nothing', till at
last there arises a little cloud out of the sea, then I know nothing
of Calvary love." (Read 1 Kings 18:41-45). - Amy Carmichael

"It will not do for us to go to Heaven by ourselves. We must be on
fire, friends for saving others. To be workers will draw heaven down
and will draw others to heaven . Without a readiness to work, the
Spirit of prayer will not come." - Evan Roberts

"Prayer is the secret of power." - Evan Roberts

Secret prayer is the spring-time of life." - Evan Roberts

"A man who is intimate with God will never be intimidated by men."
 – Leonard Ravenhill

"It will never be altogether well with us till we convert the universe
into a prayer room, and continue in the Spirit as we go from place
to place." - George Bowen

"The main lesson about prayer is just this: Do it! Do it! Do it! You
want to be taught to pray. My answer is pray and never faint, and
then you shall never fail. There is no peradventure. You cannot fail....
A sense of real want is at the very root of prayer." - John Laidlaw

"It has often been said that prayer is the greatest force in the
universe. This is no exaggeration. It will bear constant repetition.
In this atomic age when forces are being released that stagger the
thought and imagination of man, it is well to remember that prayer
transcends all other forces." - F. J. Huegel

"So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and
stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not
destroy it; but I found no one." - Ezekiel 22:30
