 AWT Prayer



PRAYER ISN’T A MATTER of getting on your knees. Prayer is the elevation of the heart to God and that is all a man needs to praise, to pray and to worship.

 Re: AWT Prayer



THERE IS A GREAT DEAL of praying being done among us that does not amount to anything!… There is no possible good that can come in our trying to cover up or deny it.
The truth is that there is enough prayer made on any Sunday to save the whole world—but the world is not saved. About the only thing that comes back after our praying is the echo of our own voices.
I contend that this kind of praying which is so customary among us has a most injurious effect upon the Church of Christ.

 Re: AWT Prayer



TRUE PRAYER CANNOT BE imitated nor can it be learned from someone else. Everyone must pray as if he alone could pray, and his approach must be individual and independent—independent, that is, of everyone but the Holy Spirit.

 Re: AWT Prayer



THE ARTLESS LITTLE CHILD is still the divine model for all of us. Prayer will increase in power and reality as we repudiate all pretense and learn to be utterly honest before God as well as before men.

“Keep me, Lord, from ever hardening down into the state of being just another average Christian.

 Re: AWT Prayer



When we become too glib in prayer we are most surely talking to ourselves.

 Re: AWT Prayer



IF UNANSWERED PRAYER continues in a congregation over an extended period of time, there will be a chill of discouragement settling over the praying people. If we continue to ask and ask and ask like petulant children, never expecting to get what we ask for but continuing to whine for it, we will become chilled within our beings.

 Re: AWT Prayer



As we go on into God we shall see the excellency of the life of constant communion where all thoughts and acts are prayers, and the entire life becomes one holy sacrifice of praise and worship.

 Re: AWT Prayer



Prayer is not a sure fire protection against error for the reason that there are many kinds of prayer and some of them are worse than useless.

 Re: AWT Prayer



In our private prayers and in our public services we are forever asking God to do things that He either has already done or cannot do because of our unbelief. We plead for Him to speak when He has already spoken and is at that very moment speaking. We ask Him to come when He is already present and waiting for us to recognize Him. We beg the Holy Spirit to fill us while all the time we are preventing Him by our doubts.
