Prayer

Open Your DoorsImage by Frank Wuestefeld via Flickr

But when you pray, go into your private room, shut your door, and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
Matthew 6:6
'If you have so much business to attend to that you have no time to pray, depend upon it, you have more business on hand than God ever intended you should have.' DL Moody
'The management of time is the management of self; therefore, if you manage time with God, He will begin to manage you.' Jill Briscoe
'The Word of God is demanding. It demands a stretch of time in our day; even though it be a very modest one; in which He is our only companion...God will not put up with being fobbed off with prayers in telegram style and cut short like a troublesome visitor for whom we open the door just a crack to get rid of him as quickly as possible.' Helmut Thielicke
'Now, as always, God discloses Himself to babes and hides himself in thick darkness from the wise and the prudent. We must simplify our approach to Him. We must strip down to essentials (and they will be found to be blessedly few). We must put away all effort to impress, and come with the guileless candour of childhood. If we do this, without a doubt God will quickly respond.' AW Tozer
