8/26/01  "That in order to form a habit of conversing with God continually, and referring all we do to Him; we must at first apply to Him with some diligence: but that after a little care we should find His love inwardly excite us to it without any difficulty."  -Brother Lawrence

9/9/01  "Let us often look at Brainerd in the woods of America pouring out his very soul before God for the perishing heathen without whose salvation nothing could make him happy. Prayer -- secret fervent believing prayer -- lies at the root of all personal godliness.  A competent knowledge of the language where a missionary lives, a mild and winning temper, a heart given up to God in closet religion -- these, these are the attainments which, more than all knowledge, or all other gifts, will fit us to become the instruments of God in the great work of human redemption."  -Carrey's Brotherhood, Serampore (of David Brainerd)

9/16/01  "You know the value of prayer: it is precious beyond all price. Never, never neglect it."  -Sir Thomas Buxton

9/23/01  "Prayer is the first thing, the second thing, the third thing necessary to a minister.  Pray, then, my dear brother: pray, pray, pray." -Edward Payson 

9/30/01  "We are stressing true praying, which engages and sets on fire every high element of the preacher's being -- prayer which is born of vital oneness with Christ and the fullness of the Holy Ghost, which springs from the deep, overflowing fountains of tender compassion, deathless solicitude for man's eternal good; a consuming zeal for the glory of God; a thorough conviction of the preacher's difficult and delicate work and of the imperative need of God's mightiest help."           -E. M. Bounds
