Watchman Nee Quotes
  1. Every need is a call to prayer.
  2. A Christian should know more about the operation of his spirit than about the activity of his mind.
  3. A person who wholly follows the Lord is one who believes that the promises of God are trustworthy, that He is with His people, and that they are well able to overcome.
  4. A spiritual Christian must experimentally know the Holy Spirit in his spirit.
  5. Faith looks not at what happens to him but at Him Whom he believes.
  6. God will answer all our questions in one way and one way only. Namely, by showing us more of his Son.
  7. How true it is that without the guidance of the Holy Spirit intellect not only is undependable but also extremely dangerous, because it often confuses the issue of right and wrong.
  8. How we need the Lord to enlighten our eyes that we may comprehend afresh the importance of prayer and know anew its value. Furthermore, we must recognize that had Satan not deceived us we would not be neglecting prayer so much. We should therefore watch and discover therein all the various wiles of Satan. We will not allow him to delude us any more in relaxing in prayer.
  9. If we were more disposed today to mind the voice of conscience we would not be as defeated as we are.
  10. Many are so preoccupied with work that they allow little time for prayer.
  11. Many confuse understanding with believing.
  12. Negligence in prayer withers the inner man.
  13. Nowadays Christians appear to treat prayer as a means to accomplish their aims and ideas.  If they possessed just a little deeper understanding, they would recognize that prayer is but man uttering to God what is God’s will.
  14. Our prayers lay the track down which God’s power can come. Like a mighty locomotive, his power is irresistible, but it cannot reach us without rails.
  15. Our rest lies in looking to the Lord, not to ourselves.
  16. Prayer enables us first inwardly to overcome the enemy and then outwardly to deal with him.
  17. Prayer is the acid test of the inner man’s strength.  A strong spirit is capable of praying much and praying with all perseverance until the answer comes.  A weak one grows weary and fainthearted in the maintenance of praying.
  18. Prayer is the union of the believer’s thought with the will of God.
  19. Prayer is work. The experiences of many children of God demonstrate that it accomplishes far more than does any other form of work.
  20. The indwelling Spirit shall teach him what is of God and what is not.  This is why sometimes we can conjure up no logical reason for opposing a certain teaching, yet in the very depth of our being arises a resistance.
  21. The purpose of prayer is not to notify God but to express our trust, our faith, our expectation, and our heart desire.
  22. The sight of any trouble strikes terror into the heart of those who do not have faith, but those who trust Him say, “Here comes my food!”
  23. We should not open our mouths too hastily upon approaching God.  On the contrary, we first must ask God to show us what and how to pray before we make our request known to Him.  Have we not consumed a great deal of time in the past asking for what we wanted?  Why not now ask for what God wants?
  24. Why do so many Christians pray such tiny prayers when their God is so big?
