- Every prayerless day is a statement by a helpless individual, I do not need God today.
- Failing to pray reflects idolatry–a trust in substitutes for God.
- Neglecting prayer is not a weakness; it is a sinful choice.
- Prayer and theology both deal with God , but from different perspectives. Theology, like a telescope, views the distant stars of His qualities. Prayer, like a space vehicle, moves us among His qualities. Theology studies God and prayer engages Him. Both are adventuresome. Both necessary.
- Prayer completes the circuit of God’s action in the world.
- Prayer grows in proportion to its grounding in God’s Word.
- Prayer is more than something you do; it is something God does through you.
- Prayerless decisions lead to tragic loses.
- Prayerless is an insult to God.
- Prayerlessness is an insult to God. Every prayerless day is a statement by a helpless individual, ‘I do not need God today.’
- Praying makes your Christian life supernatural; God gets His work done through your praying.
- When you pray you step into the operation of the Trinity.
- Without its biblical principles being taught, prayer is unstable. Without our catching the principles by applying them to our lives, it is sterile.
- Your praying is training for reigning with Christ.
