Prayer is so simple


If we had more prayers we would have fewer cares.

Prayer digs the channel from the reservoir of God’s boundless resources to the tiny pools of our lives.

The one concern of the Devil is to keep the saints from prayer. He fears nothing from prayerless studies, prayerless work, prayerless religion. He laughs at our toil, mocks at our wisdom, but trembles when we pray.

* * *

Prayer is something you can be doing all the time, no matter what else you’re doing. It’s like thinking on your feet.

* * *

As long as you’re calling, you can expect God to answer; as long as you’re empty, you can be filled.

I don’t remember the days when sermons were timed by an hour glass on the pulpit, but I do recall thinking, as a small boy, that what we called the “long prayer” seemed to go on for hours! The late Dr. W.E. Sangster, the well-known Methodist preacher, used to speak of what he called “minute prayers” – brief prayers “shot out”, as he put it, at any moment of the day, in a way that can keep us in constant touch with the sense of God’s presence. There could be a lot of prayer in a few words, he suggested.

Famous men comment on prayer:
I can take my telescope and look millions and millions of miles into space; but I can lay my telescope aside, go into my room and shut the door, get down on my knees in earnest prayer, and I see more of Heaven and get closer to God than I can when assisted by all the telescopes and material agencies on earth. Sir Isaac Newton

Let the Divine Mind flow through your own mind, and you will be happier. I have found the greatest power in the world is the power of prayer. There is no shadow of doubt of that. I speak from my own experience. Cecil B. DeMille

Prayer Is So Simple . . .
It is like quietly opening a door
And slipping into the very presence of God,
There in the stillness
To listen to His voice.
Perhaps to petition
Or only to listen,

It matters not;
Just to be there
In His presence
Is prayer!
