"To pray in the name of Christ is to pray as one who is at one with Christ, whose minid is the mind of Christ, whose desires are the desires of Christ, and whose purpose is one with that of Christ."

- Samuel Chadwick


"All that is Christ's is ours now, if all that we posses and are is His now."

-Theodore Epp


"By their prayers Christians acknowledge that they have no power to bring about the things they are praying for, but God has. Their prayers are not a way of trying to force God to do what they want; on the contrary, their prayers are an admission of their helplessness and complete dependance on God. By their prayers they are inviting God to work out his answer to the matter they are praying about."

- Don Fleming, The Christian's Life Pub. Bridgeway Publications, Australia

"The answer to prayer does not depend on the zeal or will-power of the person praying, but on the wisdom and power of God. God does not want people to work up feelings of one sort or another. He wants them simply to trust in him. The merit is not in the prayer itself, but in God who answers the prayer. Christians can pray in the right spirit only when they recognize their helplessness, and trust God to do what they cannot. Faith is the basi requirement of all prayer."

- Don Fleming, The Christian's Life Pub. Bridgeway Publications, Australia

"People do not need large amounts of faith in order to pray. They need only enough faith to turn in their helplessness to God. Like prayer, faith has no merit in itself. That is, God does not need people's faith to help him do things. God has complete power whtin himself. Faith is simply the means by which believers come to him and ask him to exercise that power.

- Don Fleming, The Christian's Life Pub. Bridgeway Publications, Australia

"At times, however, God may choose not to give his people what they ask for, even when they are not guilty of disobedience or selfishness. The reason may be that he has something better for them. Having perfect knowledge, he knows what is best. He may therefore give believers what they would have asked for if they had the full knowledge that God has. These betteranswers are not always immediately obvious, and therefore patience is a necessary part of true prayer.

- Don Fleming, The Christian's Life Pub. Bridgeway Publications, Australia

Prayer is one way that God trains his children in the development of Christian character. Although he lovingly gives them much without their asking, there are many things they will learn only by asking. They will learn some things only through having their requests refused, but even then they can be confident that a wise and loving Father is always working for their good.

- Don Fleming, The Christian's Life Pub. Bridgeway Publications, Australia

"The greatest thing anyone can do for God and for man is to pray. The great people of the earth today are the people who pray. I do not mean those who talk about prayer: nor those who say they believe in prayer: nor yet those who can explain abut prayer: But I mean these people who take the time and pray. . . It is wholly a secret service."

- S. D. Gordon


"Now prayer is this: A man... insistently claiming that Satan shall yield before Jesus' victory, step by step, life after life."

- S. D. Gordon


"The primary office of prayer is communion with God. To have Him is to have all. . . to aim at anything less than God Himself is to miss te mark."

- F. J. Huegel


"Prayer on any other basis than Calvary is a Satanic counterfeit."

- F. J. Huegel


"Oh, for soldiers who will buckle on the armour of God and face the foe! Oh, for soldiers who will grasp the weapons which are not carnal; but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds of Satan, the prince of darkness! Oh, for soldiers who will believe that Christ the Lord has spoiled principalities and powers and made a show of them openly, triumphing over them through the Criss: who will, in the name of Jesus, exercise authority, excecute judgement that is written in Psalm 149, and so move mountains of oppression that are crushing peoples and nations today."

- F. J. Huegel


"To pray is nothing more involved than to let Jesus into our needs."

- O Hallsby


"It is only when the Church gives herself up to this holy work of intercession that we can expect the power of Christ to manifest itself in her behalf."

- Andrew Murray


"No great spiritual awakening has begun anywhere in the world apart from united prayer. . . ."

- J. Edwin Orr


Briefly, prayer warfare simply means holding unceasingly the power of the 'finished work of Christ' over the hosts of evil, in their attack upon some place of person, until the victory is won. Just as Moses lifted his hands steadfastly until the victory was won, so the prayer warrior holds up steadfastly the victory of the Cross - the finished victory of Christ over Satan - until the forces of evil retreat and are vanquished.

- Jessie Penn-Lewis, The Spiritual Warfare


Prayer warfare against the powers of darkness can only be understood and entered into by those who are 'spiritual.' i.e., distinctly a spirit warfare against spirit foes.

- Jessie Penn-Lewis, The Spiritual Warfare

There are some striking passages of Scripture which make it abundantly clear that in the unseen world there is daily inprogress a tense battle for supremacy (Dan. 10:12-21). That is the foremost sreason why prayer may be difficult. The Devil opposes it.

- F. J. Perryman, Whom Resist


"The Spirit-controlled Christian, Paul asserts, is involved in spiritual warfare with powerful but intangible forces. IN this conflict only spiritual weapons are effective. But they are available and are 'divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses' (2 Cor.10:4). Of thse weapons, the most potente is that recommended by Paul: 'pray[er] at all times in the Spirit" (Eph.. 6:18)."

- J. Oswald Sanders


"Real prayer is opposing a great spiritual force to the onslaught of evil, and asking God to put into operation the work done by His Son on the Cross, which was not only the redemption of man, but the defat of the prince of this world."

- A. Sims


A sinner's cry for mercy puts that one on "praying ground."

- Wayne R. Spear


Jesus found that it was occasionally necessary to sacrifice sleep in order to have more time for prayer. If Jesus felt the need of special and regular prayer times, I certainly don't need them less.

- Wayne R. Spear


There is not a single instance in God's Word of an endorsement of prayer to the deceased, nor to living saints.

- Wayne R. Spear


"... In each of the Persons (of the Trinity) the whole essence of God is to be found. Since prayer to God is always proper, any of the Persons may be addressed in prayer."

- Wayne R. Spear
