Prayer keeps the heart open to God, but shut to sin.
Prayer is the key which unlocks God’s treasures of mercy.
Prayer is the arrow and faith is the bow, by which our requests go up to heaven.
A faithless prayer is a fruitless prayer.
Prayer opens the door of heaven and receives the blessings from God’s hand.
God comes down to us by His Spirit and we go up to Him by prayer.
The tree of the promises will not drop its fruit unless shaken by the hand of prayer.
The prayer most likely to pierce heaven is one which first pierces one’s own heart.
Lifeless prayer is no more prayer than the picture of a man is the man.
A godly man will as soon live without food as without prayer.
Prayer delights God’s ear, melts His heart, and opens His hand.
