    Prayer quotes by:    

Other duties become pressing and absorbing and crowd our prayer. "Choked to death" would be the coroner's verdict in many cases of dead praying if an inquest could be secured on this dire, spiritual calamity.

    Author: E.M. Bounds

I feel it is far better to begin with God, to see His face first, to get my soul near Him before it is near another. In general it is best to have at least one hour alone with God before engaging in anything else.

    Author: E.M. Bounds

Trouble and prayer are closely related. Trouble often drives men to God in prayer, while prayer is but the voice of men in trouble.

    Author: E.M. Bounds

Private place and plenty of time are the life of prayer.

    Author: E.M. Bounds

Straight praying is never born of crooked conduct.

    Author: E.M. Bounds

Praying which does not result in pure conduct is a delusion. We have missed the whole office and virtue of praying if it does not rectify conduct. It is in the very nature of things that we must quit praying, or quit bad conduct.

    Author: E.M. Bounds

Our praying, to be strong, must be buttressed by holy living. The life of faith perfects the prayer of faith.

    Author: E.M. Bounds

We cannot talk to God strongly when we have not lived for God strongly. The closet cannot be made holy to God when the life has not been holy to God.

    Author: E.M. Bounds

If we would have God in the closet, God must have us out of the closet. There is no way of praying to God, but by living to God.

    Author: E.M. Bounds

Men would pray better if they lived better. They would get more from God if they lived more obedient and well-pleasing to God.

    Author: E.M. Bounds

We can never know God as it is our privilege to know Him by brief repetitions that are requests for personal favors, and nothing more.

    Author: E.M. Bounds

There is neither encouragement nor room in Bible religion for feeble desires, listless efforts, lazy attitudes; all must be strenuous, urgent, ardent. Flamed desires, impassioned, unwearied insistence delight heaven. God would have His children incorrigibly in earnest and persistently bold in their efforts. Heaven is too busy to listen to half-hearted prayers or to respond to pop-calls. Our whole being must be in our praying.

    Author: E.M. Bounds
