I Felt I Should Pray But...

The men who have been greatly used of God have all been mighty in prayer. As you read their biographies you discover that the spirit of prayer predominates.

Jacob exclaims: "I will not let Thee go except Thou bless me," and hears God say: "Thou hast striven with God and with men and hast prevailed."

You may be marvelously gifted and equipped for the service of God, but if you have not learned how to prevail in prayer you can never expect God's blessing on your labors. (Oswald J. Smith,1889-1986)

Aren't we all hard-wired to 'perform' long prior to clasping our hands in prayer? 

Sadly we pray most when we fail most, not before we begin. The humble believer knows that 'no man is greater than his prayer life.' (Leonard Ravenhill, 1907-1994)
