Our Lord Jesus Christ

And it’s through prayer that I live today. I live by the grace of God through prayer.

William M. Branham 61-1015M

“Pray without ceasing.” (I THESSALONIANS 5:17). But what is prayer all about? Is the purpose of prayer to bring God down to men, so that we may relay information and requests? No, of course not. Being God, He already knows all things!

The purpose of prayer is to take men up to God, so that we may loose sight of earthly things and have fellowship with Him in Heavenly Places. “You sway out into somewhere else, way beyond, and on, and on, and on, until you come into His Presence.” THOU KNOWEST ALL THINGS 52-0716.

When we approach Him in prayer, He hears more than the words that we speak . He hears our intentions, and the motive of our hearts as well. David, who certainly knew how to reach the Heart of God in prayer, prayed “Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in Thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.”(PSALMS 19:14)

These are the thoughts(Quotes) on prayer from the prophet and other Messengers on the importance of prayer in our daily life!

Pray like you’ve never prayed before. Pray like you were dying, like it’s your last minute."

You that have been truly baptized into the Holy Spirit, and you have the Token to display, you have a right to every redemptive blessing that God promised. Everything that He promised is yours. Hold your Token over your unwavering faith as you pray, and over his Word."

If God would hear Jonah’s prayer, and Jonah praying like that; and God respected his prayer to an earthly temple, where an earthy man dedicated it, and a prayer of an earthy man.

Does God answer prayer? Yes. Does He answer real quick? Not all the time, does He? No, sometimes He makes us wait, is that right? But God answers prayer.

All the church has to pray, and all the laity has to pray, the deacons and the trustees and the pastor; then altogether we come into the Presence of God like that, as one great unit.

Prayer is not exactly bringing God down to man. It’s bringing man up to God. See? As you pray, you lose-- you lose sight of these earthly things. You sway out into somewhere else, way beyond, and on and on and on, till you be come into His Presence.

William Branham 52-0716

Prayer from a saint will go a million times higher than an Angel (Yes sir.) because he’s a son.

I tell you, dear friend: the best way to find the Will of God in some important matters, is prayer. See?

William Branham 61-1015M

We find one place there, where The Son of God spent so much time in prayer. And if Jesus had to spend much time in prayer to stay in fellowship with The Spirit that was in Him, how much more do you and I have to spend in prayer?

William Branham 55-0227E

Get away from this old lukewarm, halfway, say a little prayer of a morning, little prayer at night, and go to bed and get up the next morning. No wonder we’re getting worldly.

William Branham 64-0830E

There seems to be something to the prayer that takes all the hypocrisy out of it. It seems like that we get in a better connection with God, to get alone. You know there’s something about getting alone to yourself.

William Branham 57-0301

Christ gave us the authority with His Name by being Christians, the most powerful weapon the world has ever known: Prayer.

William Branham 52-0224

The Christian doesn’t realize what a force he has when he kneels on his knees before Almighty God in The Name of Jesus Christ. He doesn’t realize what – what power that is.

You can’t hide a saint from his prayer. That’s the powerfulest weapon that man ever had.

That’s the greatest time of anybody’s life, is just to set down and meditate, take everything off your mind. If you would do that, there wouldn’t be so much nervousness around the country.

William Branham 60-0330

I can’t be a servant of Christ and a servant of man at the same time. So I have to keep myself away in prayer, and meditation, in order to be my best at the pulpit.

William Branham 58-0625

That’s why the preacher preaches. That’s why he studies and meditates in the Scripture and seeks for inspiration, is because he is a public servant to God’s people.

William Branham 60-0925

I just wish you could just get together and pray, and…you… you could have the best church in the world right here, the best union of people.

John Wesley

To be a Christian without prayer is no more possible than to be alive without breathing."

Martin Luther

Thanksgiving is inseparable from true prayer; it is almost essentially connected with it. One who always prays is ever giving praise, whether in ease or pain, both for prosperity and for the greatest adversity. He blesses God for all things, looks on them as coming from Him, and receives them for His sake- not choosing nor refusing, liking or disliking,anything, but only as it is agreeable or disagreeable to His perfect will.”

To gather with God's people in united adoration of the Father is as necessary to the Christian life as prayer."

So you shouldn’t do it until you thoroughly pray through."

William Branham 55-1110

William Branham 01-13-55

If we lose faith, then we will never get a prayer answered by God. For He that cometh to God must first believe that He is, and a rewarder of those that diligently seek after Him. So if we lose faith, our prayers are annulled; we get nowhere.
