What Some Dignitaries Have Said About Prayer

“I would rather teach one man to pray than ten men to preach.” – Charles Spurgeon “The man who mobilizes the Christian church to pray will make the greatest contribution to world evangelization in history.” – Andrew Murray “We have to pray with our eyes on God, not on the difficulties.” – Oswald Chambers “There is no other activity in life so important as that of prayer. Every other activity depends upon prayer for its best efficiency.” – M.E. Andross “He who runs from God in the morning will scarcely find Him the rest of the day.” – John Bunyan “Prayer is not learned in a classroom, but in the closet.” – E. M. Bounds “We must begin to believe that God, in the mystery of prayer, has entrusted us with a force that can move the Heavenly world, and can bring its power down to earth.” – Andrew Murray “Prayer is not asking.

After a week, the first man was lonely and he decided to pray for a wife. The next day, another ship was wrecked, and the only survivor was a woman who swam to his side of the land. On the other side of the island, there was nothing! Soon the first man prayed for a house, clothes, more food. The next day, like magic, all of these were given to him.

This was a journey of two days and required camping overnight at the halfway point. On one of these journeys, I arrived in the city where I planned to collect money from a bank, purchase medicine and supplies, and then begin my two-day journey back to the field hospital. Upon arrival in the city, I observed two men fighting, one of whom had been seriously injured. I treated him for his injuries and at the same time talked to him about the Lord. I then travelled two days, camping overnight, and arrived home without incident. Two weeks later I repeated my journey. Upon arriving in the city, I was approached by the young man I had treated. He told me that he
