Without a doubt, prayer is the greatest art in the world, a holy art that only needs to be learned and practiced.
The greatest difference between effective and anemic Christianity, is prayer. The most fruitful soul winners are those who make much of prayer. The greatest preachers of the gospel and missionaries of the cross are those who pray long and often. Everyday believers who walk in the power and miracles of God are people who see prayer as an attitude of life, not as a series of isolated acts.
To succeed at prayer is to realize that heaven is not far from earth. It is the ability to bend the arm of God.
