Prayer Quote of the Month: 13 May - Oct. 2004
May 2004 "When I pray coincidences happen, and when I do not, they donít." -William Temple
June 2004 "True, whole prayer is nothing but love." -St. Augustine
July 2004 "He works so naturally and so sweetly with our own spirits that we cannot with certainty distinguish his working by any fervour or strength of impression. His working is best known by the favour and relish of divine things that we feel in our souls, and the consequent fruits of sanctification in our hearts and lives." -Isaac Watts
August 2004 "I have read the lives of many eminent Christians who have been on earth since the Bible days. Some of them, I see, were rich, and some poor. Some were learned, and some unlearned. Some of them were Episcopalians, and some Christians of other names. Some were Calvinists, and some were Arminians. Some have loved to use a liturgy, and some to use none. But one thing, I see, they all had in common. They have all been men of prayer." -Bishop J. C. Ryle
condition of the church may be very accurately gauged by its prayer
meetings. So is the prayer meeting a grace-ometer, and from it we
may judge of the amount of divine working among a people. If God be
near a church, it must pray. And if He be not there, one of the
first tokens of His absence will be a slothfulness in prayer!"
October 2004 "God's acquaintance is not made hurriedly." -E. M. Bounds
wills that men should pray everywhere, but the place of His glory is in
the solitudes, where He hides us in the cleft of the rock, and talks with
man face to face as a man talks with his friend."
December 2004 "The Lord led us gradually to the sin of prayerlessness as one of the deepest roots of the problem. No one could claim to be free from this. Nothing so reveals a defective spiritual life in a minister or a congregation as a lack of believing and unceasing prayer. Prayer is the pulse of the spiritual life." -Andrew Murray
