8 Favorite Quotes From The Book “The Scriptures and Prayer” (Arthur W. Pink)

Here’s some great quotes I got from a book I recently finished, The Scriptures and Prayer by Arthur W. Pink, published by Chapel Library. You can get your copy, both physical and digital for free by following this link.

“…freedom and delight in prayer are stimulated by the consciousness that God is, through Jesus Christ, willing and ready to dispense grace and mercy to suppliant sinners.”

“…prayer is an act of worship, a paying homage: to the Father as the Giver, in the Son’s name, by whom alone we may approach Him, by the moving and directing power of the Holy Spirit.”

“We are to spread our case before God, but leave it to His superior wisdom to prescribe how it shall be dealt with. There must be no dictating, nor can we “claim” anything from God, for we are beggars dependent upon His mere mercy.”

“…real prayer is a felt need awakened within us by the Spirit, so that we ask God, in the name of Christ, for that which is in accord with His holy will.”

“A prayerless Christian is a contradiction in terms. Just as a still-born child is a dead one, so a professing believer who prays not is devoid of spiritual life.”

“In seeking material things from God it should not be in order that we may be gratified, but as an aid to our pleasing Him better.”

“Prayer is an acknowledgment of our helplessness, and a looking to Him from whom all our help comes.”

“…one of the principal reasons why so many of our prayers remain unanswered is because we have a wrong, an unworthy, end in view.”
