Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
The people who are so greatly needed
in this age of the church are those
who have learned the business of praying—
learned it on their knees,
learned it in the need and agony of their own hearts.
Praying people are the one commanding need of this day,
as of all other days,
if God is to intervene in the world.
In doing God’s work there is no substitute for praying.
People of prayer cannot be replaced
with other kinds of people.
People of financial skill,
people of education,
people of worldly influence –-
none of these can possibly substitute
for people of prayer.
The people to whom Jesus Christ
committed the fortunes and destiny of His church
were people of prayer.
To no other kind of people
has God ever committed Himself. ~~~M. Bounds
