“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

Also, when you last prayed, was it just about you or about someone other than yourself?
