       our own need as a burden we must lay upon God, but also because we are so

       own. To make intercession for men is the most powerful and practical way in 
       which we can express our love for them." John Calvin

       who knows how to overcome with God in prayer has Heaven and earth at his 
       disposal." Charles H. Spurgeon
33. "Prayer is a spiritual law which cooperates with the mind of God. It has more in
       it than merely petition. It clothes itself in reality and power, with the force of 
       God Himself. It is an attitude of spirit and mind. Language is secondary in true 
       prayer." Gossner.

34. “What the church needs today is not more machinery or better, not new

       away before God has a chance to reply. Listening to God is far more  
       important than giving Him our ideas.” Frank Laubach

40. "Time spent in prayer will yield more than that given to work. Prayer alone 
       gives work its worth and its success. Prayer opens the way for God Himself to 
       do His work in us and through us. Let our chief work as God's messengers be 
       intercession; in it we secure the presence and power of God to go with 
       us." Andrew Murray

41.“Yes, worship of the loving God is man’s whole reason for existence.” 
       A.W. Tozer

42. “The Bible is not an end in itself, but a means to bring men to an intimate and 
        satisfying knowledge of God, that they may enter into Him, that they may 
        delight in His Presence, may taste and know the inner sweetness of the very 
        God Himself in the core and center of their hearts.”  A.W. Tozer 

43. "Prayer is the secret of power."  Evan Roberts

44. "Since the days of Pentecost, has the whole church ever put aside every other
       work and waited upon Him for ten days, that the Spirit’s power might be 
       manifested? We give too much attention to method and machinery and 
       resources, and too little to the source of power."  Hudson Taylor

       dime a dozen - degrees or no degrees."  Leonard Ravenhill

48. He who runs from God in the morning will scarcely find Him the rest of the 
      day. John Bunyan
49. "Prayer is the first thing, the second thing, the third thing necessary to a 
       minister. Pray, then my dear brother; pray, pray, pray."  Edward Payson

50. "Each time, before you intercede, be quiet first, and worship God in His glory. 
       Think of what He can do, and how He delights to hear the prayers of His 
        redeemed people. Think of your place and privilege in Christ, and expect 
        great things!"  Andrew Murray
