Prayer Quotes – A.W. Tozer

A.W. Tozer Quotes

  1. Prayer at its best is the expression of the total life, for all things else being equal, our prayers are only as powerful as our lives.
  2. God wants to be loved for Himself, but that is only part. He also wants us to know that when we have Him we have everything.
  3. The yearning to know what cannot be known, to comprehend the incomprehensible, to touch and taste the unapproachable, arises from the image of God in the nature of man. Deep calleth unto deep, and though polluted and landlocked by the mighty disaster theologians call the Fall, the soul senses its origin and longs to return to its source.
  4. [Intimacy w. God] can be such union as make miracles seem tame & [answers] appear short of wonderful in contrast.
  5. Every man is as holy as he really wants to be.
  6. Faith engages the person and promises of God and rests upon them with perfect assurance.
  7. Faith honors God by counting Him righteous and accepts His testimony against the very evidence of its own senses.
  8. Faith is at the root of all true worship, and without faith it is impossible to please God.
  9. For this reason the gravest question before the Church is always God Himself, and the most portentous fact about any man is not what he at a given time may say or do, but what he is his deep heart conceives God to be like.
  10. God is looking for those with whom He can do the impossible– what a pity that we plan only the things that we can do by ourselves.
  11. He must set his heart to conquer by prayer, and that will mean that he must first conquer his own flesh, for it is the flesh that hinders prayer always.
  12. I believe that God’s people have had it with cheap imitations…they long for the reality of God’s presence.
  13. I can safely say, on the authority of all that is revealed in the Word of God, that any man or woman on this earth who is bored and turned off by worship is not ready for heaven.
  14. If Bible Christianity is to survive the present world upheaval, we shall need to have a fresh revelation of the greatness and the beauty of Jesus…. He alone can raise our cold hearts to rapture and restore again the art of true worship.
  15. If men and women are not willing to assume a listening attitude, there will be no meeting with God in living, personal experience
  16. It is no sin to doubt some things, but it may be fatal to believe everything.
  17. It is not what a man does that determines whether his work is sacred or secular, it is why he does it. The motive is everything.
  18. It is significant that the schools teach everything about preaching except the important part, praying.
  19. Man appears for a little while to laugh and weep, to work and play, and then to go to make room for those who shall follow him in the never-ending cycle.
  20. Nobody ever got anything from God on the grounds that he deserved it. Haven fallen, man deserves only punishment and death. So if God answers prayer it’s because God is good. From His goodness, His lovingkindness, His good-natured benevolence, God does it! That’s the source of everything.
  21. One hundred religious persons knit into a unity by careful organization do not constitute a church any more than eleven dead men make a football team.
  22. Prayer is never an acceptable substitute for obedience. The sovereign Lord accepts no offering from His creatures that is not accompanied by obedience. To pray for revival while ignoring or actually flouting the plain precept laid down in the Scriptures is to waste a lot of words and get nothing for our trouble.
  23. The essence of idolatry is the entertainment of thoughts about God that are unworthy of Him.
  24. We forget that before the Redeemer could rise and sing among His brethren He must first bow His head and suffer among His brethren!
  25. Whatever a man wants badly and persistently enough will determine the man’s character.
  26. When I am praying the most eloquently, I am getting the least accomplished in my prayer life. But when I stop getting eloquent and give God less theology and shut up and just gaze upward and wait for God to speak to my heart He speaks with such power that I have to grab a pencil and a notebook and take notes on what God is saying to my heart.
  27. Worship is pure or base as the worshiper entertains high or low thoughts of God.
  28. Wrong ideas about God are not only the fountain from which the polluted waters of idolatry flow; they are themselves idolatrous.

  30. [Intimacy w. God] can be such union as make miracles seem tame & [answers] appear short of wonderful in contrast.
