“Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.” Matthew 18:19-20
“Ah! How often, Christians, hath God kissed you at the beginning of prayer, and spoken peace to you in the midst of prayer, and filled you with joy and assurance upon the close of prayer!” —Thomas Brooks
“Prayer will make a man cease from sin, or sin will entice a man to cease from prayer.” —John Bunyan
“When people do not mind what God speaks to them in His word, God doth as little mind what they say to Him in prayer.” —William Gurnall
“We need…more kneeling and praying and pleading to God to have mercy upon us, more crying to God to arise, scatter His enemies and make Himself known.” —D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
“Prayer becomes an exercise of highest love when you forget about your own needs and sins, take up the cares and sorrows of other people, and lay them on the heart of God.” —Benjamin Palmer
“Prayer is that point of all others in religion at which you must be on your guard. Here it is that true religion begins: here it flourishes, and here it decays. Tell me what a man’s prayers are and I will soon tell you the state of his soul. Prayer is the spiritual pulse: by this the spiritual health may always be tested….If you will only take care of your prayers, I will engage that nothing shall go very wrong with your soul.” —J. C. Ryle
“The church always has need for prayer. There are always some in her midst who are declining, or falling into open sin. There are lambs to be prayed for, that they may be carried in Christ’s bosom; the strong, lest they grow presumptuous; and the weak, lest they become despairing.” —Charles Spurgeon
