Prayer – it’s found throughout the Bible. Even Jesus prayed. Prayer is a powerful spiritual force and something that God wants His people to do. Here are some quotes and Bible verses to help keep you motivated and encouraged about that most powerful work – prayer.
Prayer is not a hard requirement - it is the natural duty of a creature to its creator, the simplest homage that human need can pay to divine liberality.
The LORD is far from the wicked, but he hears the prayer of the righteous.
- Proverbs 15:29
And whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.”
- Mark 11:25
God waits for you to communicate with Him. You have instant, direct access to God. God loves mankind so much, and in a very special sense His children, that He has made Himself available to you at all times.
When the devil sees a man or woman who really believes in prayer, who knows how to pray, and who really does pray, and, above all, when he sees a whole church on its face before God in prayer, he trembles as much as he ever did, for he knows that his day in that church or community is at an end.
