June 2003 Revivals are born in prayer.  When Wesley prayed, England was revived; when Knox prayed, Scotland was refreshed; when the Sunday School teachers of Tannybrook prayed, 11,000 young people were added to the church in a year.  Whole nights of prayer have always been succeeded by whole days of soul winning.  -Dr. J. Wilbur Chapman 

July 2003 When a boy I used to pray five times a day in secret, and to spend much time in religious conversation with other boys.  I used to meet with them to pray together.  So it is God's will through his wonderful grace, that the prayers of his saints should be one great and principal means of carrying on the designs of Christ's kingdom in the world.  Pray much for the ministers and the church of God. -Jonathan Edwards

August 2003 Prayer pulls the rope down below and the great bell rings above in the ears of God.  Some scarcely stir the bell, for they pray so languidly; others give only an occasional jerk at the rope.  But he who communicates with heaven is the man who grasps the rope boldly and pulls continuously with all his might.  -Charles Spurgeon 

September 2003 Pray without ceasing has been has been the sentence repeating itself in my silent thoughts, and I am sure that it will be, it must be, my practice till the last conscious hour of my life.  O why was it not my practice through out that long, indolent, inanimate half century past!  I often think mournfully of the difference it would have made in me.  Now there remains so little time for a more genuine, effective spiritual life.  -John Fletcher (on his deathbed).

October 2003 When I am praying the most eloquently, I am getting the least accomplished in my prayer life.  But when I stop getting eloquent and give God less theology and shut up and just gaze upward and wait for God to speak to my heart He speaks with such power that I have to grab a pencil and a notebook and take notes on what God is saying to my heart."  -A. W. Tozer
