Five Great Quotes about Prayer . . .

And Five Challenges to Pray for the Nations!


Quote 1:

“Every great movement of God can be traced to a kneeling figure.”

The Challenge:

Let us stop launching movements that we claim will change the world until we have made prayer a sincere and intentional focus.


Quote 2:

“I would rather teach one man to pray than ten men to preach.”

The Challenge:

It is not "either/or," but it is "both/and" . . . and we could do with a little more praying as we reach out to the lost around the world.


Quote 3:

“Prayer is not overcoming God's reluctance, but laying hold of His willingness.”

The Challenge:

When we look at our broken world, we can easily turn to despair, but God is drawing the nations to Himself and He chooses to work as we pray.


Quote 4:

“It is good for us to keep some account of our prayers, that we may not unsay them in our practice.”

The Challenge:

Do you live out your prayers for the nations in your service, your generosity, your education, and your hospitality?


Quote 5:

“I have been driven many times to my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go.”

The Challenge:

Many times our efforts to bless the nations will seem to fail and we fall to our knees out of desperation. However, God wants us in a posture of prayer and He will take our feeble efforts and use them mightily.
