thoughts on prayer taken from homework

“Of course the preacher is above all distinguished as a man of prayer.  He prays as an ordinary Christian, else he were a hypocrite.  He prays more than ordinary Christians, else he were disqualified for the office he has undertaken.”  – Charles Spurgeon

“I have so much business I cannot get on without spending three hours daily in prayer.”  – Martin Luther

“Prayerlessness is one of the greatest sins of American Christians.” – Alvin Reid

“Through prayer the church on earth has access to the powers of the heavenly world.” – Andrew Murray

“Where you are as a Christian five years from now will depend on how you pray more than any other factor.”  – Alvin Reid

“All our libraries and studies are mere emptiness compared with our closets.  We grow, we wax mightily, we prevail in private prayer.” – Charles Spurgeon

Just from that, I’d say prayer sounds important.  When was the last time you prayed? 
Also, when you last prayed, was it just about you or about someone other than yourself?
