Why Prayer Counts

“When Robert Louis Stevenson was four years old he announced a great discovery. “Mamma,” he said, “you cannot be good without praying.” “How do you know?” his mother asked. “Because,” said he, “I have tried”–Parker and St. Johns, Prayer Can Change Your Life, 116.

If you use prayer “as a spare tire, only when an emergency arises, [you] are very apt to be disappointed in its results”–Parker and St. Johns, 119.

“You can’t determine the wind of God (the moving of the Holy Spirit) but you can set your sails to be ready for when He moves”–Sammy Tippit.

“For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith”–Ephesians 3:14-17.

“Don’t tell God how big your storms are; tell your storms how big your God is.”

“If you want to move forward, you have to look back and remember how God has led you”–Jerry Jenkins.
