Thoughts on Prayer!

Hi everyone I know i normally post my book reviews up but I've been thinking a lot about prayer! Ive felt really challenged about the power and the importance of prayer in our lives and so to encourage myself I started looking up what the great men and women of God have to say about it! It really inspires me so thought I would share it with you!

"Make your thoughts and conversations consistent with your prayers" Bill Johnson
"It is a crime for us to pray and think nothing will happen" Bill Johnson
 "There are things God only tells friends" Bill Johnson
"You can't go in faith where you haven't gone in intimacy" Bill Johnson
"It is not the body's posture, but the hearts attitude that counts when we pray" Billy Graham
"Men may spurn our appeals, reject our message, oppose our arguments, despise our persons but they are helpless against our prayers" Sidlow Baxter
" God's looking for the open door to provide his solutions for our problems. We open that door through Prayer" Bill Johnson
."Be specific, and be relentless in praying for miracles in every part of your life. Bring the promises of God before him in your pursuit. He hasn't forgotton what he has said and does not need our reminder. However, he enjoys seeing us standing on his covenant when we pray. Prayer with fasting is to be an integral part of this quest, as he revealed this to be an important way to get breakthrough. I even pray for specific diseases for which I'm not seeing a breakthrough" Bill Johnson
 "Prayer is where the action is" John Wesley
 "Don't pray when you feel like it, have an appointment with God and keep it. A man is  powerful on his knees" Corrie ten boom
"Talking to men for God is a great thing, but talking to God for men is greater still" E.M Bounds
"Prayer is the real work, evangelism is just the mopping up"
"I would rather teach one man to pray than ten men to preach" Charles Spurgeon

There was LOADS more too! Keep giving us your wisdom people!
