"No aspect of our life in Christ is more important than is prayer; a prayerless life is a Godless life. Without prayer Bible study becomes mere academic exercise, fellowship mere social intercourse, preaching a kind of religious politics and life like a dusty imitation flower - lacking colour and fragrance. On the other hand, the man of prayer is seen to be a man of action! For him there is access to perfect wisdom and all power - nothing is impossible! The age of open miracles may be past, but God's arm is not shortened nor His power diminished. In its fulfilment, prayer is the sum total of faith and fellowship with God."
