“There is neither encouragement nor room in Bible religion for feeble desires, listless efforts, lazy attitudes; all must be strenuous, urgent, ardent. Inflamed desires, impassioned, unwearied insistence delight Heaven…Heaven is too busy to listen to half-hearted prayers or to respond to pop-calls.”
"Our praying needs to be pressed and pursued with an energy that never tires, a persistency which will not be denied, and a courage that never fails."
“Cold prayers ask for a denial! Groanings which cannot be uttered are often prayers which cannot be refused.”
