More on Prayer

I found these quotations at Searchlights Ministries:

"Believer in Jesus! — You are called, you are appointed to do the works of Jesus, and even greater works, because He has gone to the Father to receive the power to do them in and through you. 'Whatsoever you shall ask in my Name, that will I do.' Give yourself, and live, to do the works of Christ, and you will learn to pray so as to obtain wonderful answers to prayer. Give yourself, and live, to pray, and you will learn to do the works He did, and greater works. With disciples full of faith in himself, and bold in prayer to ask great things, Christ can conquer the world." Andrew Murray

"There are some of our friends who think themselves of the practical sort who say, 'The great thing is work: prayer is good, and right, but the great need is to be doing something practical.' The truth is that when one understands about prayer, and puts prayer in its right place to his life, he finds a new motive power burning in his bones to be doing; and further he finds that it is the doing that grows out of praying that is mightiest in touching human hearts. And he finds further yet with a great joy that he may be doing something for an entire world. His service becomes as broad as his Master’s thought." S. D. Gordon

"One dare-devil, praying, believing man can get the victory for a whole city or nation sometimes. Elijah did on Mount Carmel. Moses did for backsliding Israel; Daniel did in Babylon. But if a number of people can be led to pray in this way, the victory will be all the more sweeping. Let no one imagine, in a wicked heart of unbelief, that God is grudging and unwilling to answer prayer. He is more willing to answer those whose hearts are right with Him than parents are to give bread to their children." Samuel Logan Brengle
