Below you will find some of the wisest words on prayer and words of prayer. As a mentor once taught me, if you find prayer boring it is because you are praying about something you don’t care about. Find what you care about, then your prayers will become passionate and your prayer life enthusiastic. For prayer requests contact the TCT Cleveland Prayer Center (330 920-9756).

“Prayer and confession of the Word are two of the most powerful weapons believers have. You will see a great release of God’s power when these two are combined.” ~John Eckhardt

“Prayer for healing with the faith-destroying words, ‘If it be your will,’ is not planting the seed; it is destroying seed…Instead of saying ‘Pray for me,’ many should first say, “Teach me God’s word, so that I can intelligently cooperate with Him for my recovery.” ~T. L. Osborne

“Prayer is your legal right to use faith filled words to bring God on the scene in your behalf, or for another that your joy may be full.” ~Charles Capps

“If we think of prayer as the breath in our lungs and the blood from our hearts, we think rightly. The blood flows ceaselessly, and breathing continues ceaselessly; we are not conscious of it, but it is always going on.” ~Oswald Chambers

“Faith is always praying. Prayer is always believing.” ~E. M. Bounds

“We should not then pray: ‘Oh, God, I ask You to do this thing’: on the contrary we should pray, ‘God, You must do this thing, it must be done this way, God, this thing must be accomplished.’ This is commanding prayer-prayer of authority. The meaning of ‘amen’ is not ‘let it be so’ but ‘thus shall it be.’” ~Watchman Nee

“We ask for toys when we should ask for continents and be claiming the world for Christ.” ~Thomas Payne

“I pray to God this day to make me an extraordinary Christian.” ~George Whitefield

“I break all spoken curses and negative words that I have spoken over my life in the name of Jesus. I break all spoken curses and negative words spoken over my life by others, including those in authority, in the name of Jesus.” ~John Eckhardt

We give thanks for our friends. Our dear friends. We anger each other. We fail each other. We share this sad earth, this tender life, this precious time. Such richness. Such wildness. Together we are blown about. Together we are dragged along. All this delight. All this suffering. All this forgiving life. We hold it together. Amen. ~Michael Leunig, (The Prayer Tree)
