    Prayer quotes by:    

Jesus hears us, and in His own good time will give an answer... He may sometimes keep us long waiting...but He will never send us empty away.

    Author: J.C. Ryle
    Source: Commentary, Matthew 15.

What is the reason that some believers are so much brighter and holier than others? I believe the difference, in nineteen cases out of twenty, arises from different habits about private prayer. I believe that those who are not eminently holy pray little, and those who are eminently holy pray much.

The world knows little of the works wrought by prayer.

    Author: D.L. Moody

Let us pray, and as we pray, let us make room for Jesus in our hearts.

    Author: D.L. Moody

Unless the Spirit of God is with us, we cannot expect that our prayers will be answered.

    Author: D.L. Moody

Every one of our children will be brought into the ark, if we pray and work earnestly for them.

    Author: D.L. Moody

The impression that a praying mother leaves upon her children is life-long. Perhaps when you are dead and gone your prayer will be answered.

    Author: D.L. Moody

Doubtful prayer is no prayer at all.

    Author: John Calvin

Our prayer must not be self-centered. It must arise not only because we feel our own need as a burden we must lay upon God, but also because we are so bound up in love for our fellow men that we feel their need as acutely as our own. To make intercession for men is the most powerful and practical way in which we can express our love for them.

    Author: John Calvin

We must not think that [God] takes no notice of us, when He does not answer our wishes: for He has a right to distinguish what we actually need.

    Author: John Calvin

On every occasion of uneasiness, we should retire to prayer, that we may give place to the grace and light of God and then form our resolutions, without being in any pain about what success they may have. In the greatest temptations, a single look to Christ, and the barely pronouncing his name, suffices to overcome the wicked one, so it be done with confidence and calmness of spirit.

    Author: John Wesley

God's command to "pray without ceasing' is founded on the necessity we have of his grace to preserve the life of God in the soul, which can no more subsist one moment without it, than the body can without air.

    Author: John Wesley
