Memorable Quotes:

"All the mighty men of God outside the Bible have been men of prayer. They have differed from one another in many things, but they have been alike in being men of prayer."

"We must spend much time on our knees before God if we want to serve Him in the power of the Holy Spirit."

"If we put so little heart into our prayers, we cannot expect God to put much heart into answering them."

"Trying to believe something that you want to believe is not faith. Believing what God says in His Word is faith."

"If we would pray after the great achievements of life, we might go on to still greater things."

Philippians 4:6
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
