“God does nothing but by prayer, and everything with it.” — John Wesley
“Prayer does not fit us for the greater work; prayer is the greater work.” — Oswald Chambers
“In no other way can the believer become as fully involved with God’s work especially the work of world evangelism as in intercessory prayer….When the prayer warrior intercedes, he forgets his personal need and focuses all of his faith and prayer attention on others.
”To intercede is to mediate. It is to stand between a lost being and an Almighty God, praying that this person will come to know about God and His salvation.” — Dick Eastman, The Hour That Changes The World
“No one’s a firmer believer in the power of prayer than the devil; not that he practices it, but he suffers from it.” — Guy H. King
“It is not enough to begin to pray, nor to pray aright; nor is it enough to continue for a time to pray; but we must patiently, believingly, continue in prayer until we obtain an answer; and further we have not only to continue in prayer unto the end, but we have also to believe that God does hear us, and will answer our prayers. Most frequently we fail in not continuing in prayer until the blessing is obtained, and in not expecting the blessing.” — George Müller
“Each time, before you intercede, be quiet first, and worship God in His glory. Think of what He can do, and how He delights to hear the prayers of His redeemed people. Think of your place and privilege in Christ, and expect great things!” — Andrew Murray
“Beware in your prayers, above everything else, of limiting God, not only by unbelief, but by fancying that you know what He can do. Expect unexpected things ‘above all that we ask or think.’” — Andrew Murray
