Prayer is not just receiving things from God, that is the most initial
stage; true prayer is getting into perfect communion with God
– Oswald Chambers
The devil is not terribly frightened of our human efforts and
credentials. But he knows his kingdom will be damaged when we
begin to lift up our hearts to God.
– Jim Cymbala
The prayer that sparks revival begins long before the countryside
seems to awaken from its slumber in sin. It starts when men fall
on their knees and cry out to God. That’s where true intimacy
with God takes place and we begin the journey of being
transformed into the image of Christ. And as men are transformed,
the course of a nation can be changed.
– Wellington Boone
I am perfectly confident that the man who does not spend hours
alone with God will never know the anointing of the Holy Spirit.
– Oswald J. Smith
