November 2003 "At the tea table, the conversation was bright, witty, and always interesting; and after the meal was over, an adjournment was made to the study for family worship, and it was at these seasons that my beloved's prayers were remarkable for their tender childlikeness, their spiritual pathos, and their intense devotion.  He seemed to come as near to God as a little child to a loving father, and we were often moved to tears as he talked thus face to face with his Lord."  -His wife, speaking of Charles Spurgeon 

December 2003 "All hell is vanquished when the believer bows his knee in importunate supplication.  Beloved brethren, let us pray.  We cannot all argue, but we can all pray; we cannot all be leaders, but we can all be pleaders; we cannot all be mighty in rhetoric, but we can all be prevalent in prayer.  I would sooner see you eloquent with God than with men.  Prayer links us with the eternal, the Omnipotent, the Infinite, and hence it is our chief resort...Be sure that you are with God, and then you may be sure that God is with you."  -Charles Spurgeon

January 2004 "He cultivated peace and love, purity and humility; he was above anger and greed, and despised pride and conceit; he set himself to keep and teach the laws of God, and was diligent in study and in prayer...I greatly admire all these things about Aidan."  -The Venerable Bede, writing about Aidan of Lindisfarne

February 2004 "You will never be able to pray everywhere all the time, until you have learned to pray somewhere, some of the time."  -Mark Water ("Prayer Made Easy")

March 2004 "As we lift up our soul in prayer to the living God, we gain the beauty of holiness as surely as a flower becomes beautiful by living in the sunlight."  -The Kneeling Christian

April 2004 "Our seasons of fasting and prayer at the Tabernacle have been high days indeed; never has Heaven's gate stood wider; never have our hearts been nearer the central Glory."  -Charles Spurgeon
