A prayerless soul is a Christless soul. Prayer is the lisping of the believing infant, the shout of the fighting believer, the requiem of the dying saint falling asleep in Jesus. It is the breath, the watchword, the comfort, the strength, the honor of a Christian. If you be a child of God, you will seek your Father’s face and live in your Father’s love. Pray that…you may be holy, humble, zealous, and patient. Have closer communion with Christ and enter oftener into the banqueting-house of His love. – Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892), from a meditation on Colossians 4.2.
