Biersdorf, John E.
In prayer we have the courage, perhaps even the presumption and the arrogance or the audacity, to claim that God's love can be operative in the very specific situations of human need that we encounter.
Billheimer, Paul Prayer is not begging God to do something He is loath to do. It is not overcoming reluctance in God. It is enforcing Christ’s victory over Satan. It is implementing upon earth heaven’s decision concerning the affairs of men.

God shapes the world through prayer.
Prayer is a wonderful, powerful; tool placed by Almighty God in the hands of His saints, which may be used to accomplish great purposes and to achieve unusual results.

Prayer is God’s life-giving breathe. God’s purposes move along the pathway made by prayer to their glorious designs. God’s purposes are always moving to their high and beneficial ends, but the movement is along the way marked by unceasing prayer. The breathe of prayer is from God.
To pray is the calmest things we can do, and to do it well, there must be calm ness, time and deliberation.
God shapes the world by prayer. The more praying there is in the world the better the world will be, the mightier the forces against evil.

What the church needs today is not more machinery or better, not new organizations or more novel methods, but people whom the Holy Spirit can use—people of prayer, people mighty in prayer. The Holy Spirit does not flow through methods, but through men and women. He does not come on machinery, but on men and women. He does not anoint plans, but men and women—men and women of prayer.
Bridges, Charles God loves to be consulted.
Bridges, Jerry One of the more serious sins of Christians today may be the almost flippant familiarity with which we address God in prayer. None of the godly men of the Bible ever adopted the casual manner we often do.

Calvin, John In intercession, our king upon the throne finds his highest glory….through the answer to our prayers is secured by the fact that in rejecting them God would in a certain sense deny his own nature.
Prayer is obedience! God’s command is our motive for prayer.
Words fail to explain how necessary prayers, and in how many ways the exercise of prayer is profitable. Surely, with good reason the Heavenly Father affirms that the only stronghold of safety is in calling upon his name [cf. Joel 2:32]. By doing so we invoke the presence both of his providence, through which he watches over and guards our affairs, and of his power, through which he sustains us, weak as we are and well-nigh overcome, and of his goodness, through which he receives us, miserably burdened with sins, unto grace; and, in short, it is by prayer that we call him to reveal himself as wholly resent to us.
This is the sum of it: whether one is alone or in company at prayer the attitude to adopt is to think of God as one’s witness, as though shut off inside a room.
God’s command and promise is our motive for prayer.
Prayer is the chief exercise of faith.
Card, Michael Beyond the preoccupation we all have with our needs, the rock-bottom reality of prayer is the sharing of experience.
Chadwick, Samuel The one concern of the devil is to keep Christians from praying. He fears nothing from prayerless studies, prayerless work, and prayerless religion. He laughs at our toil, mocks at our wisdom, but trembles when we pray.
Satan dreads nothing but prayer. The one concern of the devil is to keep the church from praying. He laughs at our toil, mocks our wisdom, but trembles when we pray.
Hurry is the death of prayer.
Chambers, Oswald Prayer is not simply getting things from God; that is a most initial form of prayer; prayer is getting into perfect communion with God.
Think of the last thing you prayed about—were you devoted to your desire or to God? Determined to get some gift of the Spirit or to get at God? “Your heavenly Father knoweth what things ye have need of before ye ask Him.” The point of asking is that you might get to know God better. Keep praying in order to get a perfect understanding of God Himself.
The real business of your life as a saved soul is intercessory prayer. Wherever God puts you in relationships and circumstances, pray immediately; pray that Christ’s atonement may be realized in other lives as it has been in yours. Pray for your friends now; pray for those with whom you come in contact now.
If we think of prayer as the breath in our lungs and the blood from our hearts, we think rightly. The blood flows ceaselessly, and breathing continues ceaselessly; we are not conscious of it, but it is always going on.
Chichester, Richard of Day by day, dear, Lord,
Of thee three things I pray:
To see thee more clearly, Love thee more dearly, Follow thee more nearly, Day by day.
Chrysostom, Saint John Prayer is…a treasure undiminished, a mine never exhausted, a sky unobstructed by clouds, a haven unruffled by storm. It is the root, the fountain, ands the mother of a thousand blessings.
Clarke, Adam Prayer requires more of the heart than of the tongue.
Daniels, David Communion with God must be preceded by confession before God.

Evans, Colleen Townsend The right way to pray, then, is any way that allows us to communicate with God. For prayer is not a ritual; it is the soul’s inherent response to a relationship with a loving Father.
Fenhagen, James C.
Prayer … is not something added to our lives, something extra we do, but rather it is as fundamental to our lives as the act of breathing. It is through prayer that we are caught up in the rhythm and the energy of the kingdom that is amongst us and learn to see in a new way.
Finney, Charles Prayer is an essential link in the chain of causes that leads to a revival, as much so as truth. Some have zealously used truth to convert men and laid very little stress on prayer. They have reached and talked and distributed tracts with great zeal and then wondered why they had so little success. The reason was that they forgot to use the other branch of the means, effectual prayer. They overlooked the fact that truth by itself will never produce the effect without the Spirit of God, and that the Spirit is given in answer to earnest prayer.
