January 2009 "God is more easily found and sought by prayer than by disputation."  -Bernard of Clairvaux

February 2009 "Is the Son of God praying in me, or am I dictating to Him?....Prayer is not simply getting things from God, that is a most initial form of prayer; prayer is getting into perfect communion with God.

May 2009 "How different the world would look, how different the state of our nation would be, if there were more sanctified priestly souls!

June 2009 " Pray, and let God worry."  -Martin Luther

October 2009 "A dynamic praying church must be built from the inside out, employing all four levels of prayer: the secret closet, the family altar, small group praying and finally, the congregational setting."  -Richard Burr 

November 2009 "It takes us long to learn that prayer is more important than organization, more powerful than armies, more influential than wealth, and mightier than all learning."  -Samuel Chadwick

December 2009 "I live in the spirit of prayer; I pray as I walk, when I lie down and when I rise, and the answers are always coming."  -George Muller
