Prayer—secret, fervent, believing prayer—lies at the root of all personal godliness.
—William Carey (1761–1834), English missionary

Prayer should not be regarded as a duty which must be performed, but rather as a privilege to be enjoyed, a rare delight that is always revealing some new beauty.
—E.M. Bounds (1835–1913), American minister and author

*

You can do more than pray after you have prayed; but you can never do more than pray until you have prayed.
—A.J. Gordon (1836–1895), American writer and composer

*

No one is a firmer believer in the power of prayer than the devil; not that he practices it, but he suffers from it.
—Guy H. King (1885–1956), English clergyman and author

*

There come times when I have nothing more to tell God. If I were to continue to pray in words, I would have to repeat what I have already said. At such times it is wonderful to say to God, “May I be in Thy presence, Lord? I have nothing more to say to Thee, but I do love to be in Thy presence.”
—O. Hallesby (1879–1961), Norwegian theologian

*

Before we can pray, “Lord, Thy Kingdom come,” we must be willing to pray, “My kingdom go.”
—Alan Redpath (1907–1989), British evangelist and author
