I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them. (1 Timothy 2:1, NLT)

Prayer is the main thing—the center, the core, the root, the spirit of all we do. It is our primary task. … Prayer is our essence and genius—our principal work and the means by which everything else is done. – David Roper

The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results. Elijah was as human as we are, and yet when he prayed earnestly that no rain would fall, none fell for three and a half years! Then, when he prayed again, the sky sent down rain and the earth began to yield its crops. (James 5:16-18, NLT)

The secret of life is in the secret place where God waits. … There is nothing about which I do not pray. I go over all my life in the presence of God. All my problems are solved there. All questions of liberty as well as duty are settled there. I seek counsel of God, and submit all things to the judgement of God. The sanctuary of my soul is there. — Samuel Chadwick

King David says, “I am prayer.” (Psalm 109:4, ESV)
