Leonard Ravenhill - Prayer is not an argument with God to persuade him to move things our way, but an exercise by which we are enabled by his Spirit to move ourselves his way.

Harry Emerson Fosdick - Prayer is putting oneself under God’s influence.

Pope Pius XII - A man without prayer is like a tree without roots.

C.H. Spurgeon once said, "Prayer pulls the rope down below and the great bell rings above in the ears of God. Some scarcely stir the bell, for they pray so languidly; others give only an occasional jerk at the rope. But he who communicates with heaven is the man who grasps the rope boldly and pulls continuously with all his might."

(From a sermon by Bobby Scobey, "Essentials #4-When You Pray-Part 2" 2/25/2009)
