The Profound Secret of Prayer

“They ought always to pray, and not to faint.” -Jesus (Luke 18:1)

“If we do not pray always, we never pray. The man who makes prayer a scheme by which occasionally he tries to get something for himself has not learned the deep, profound secret of prayer. Prayer is life passionately wanting, wishing, desiring God’s triumph. Prayer is life striving, toiling everywhere and everywhen for that ultimate victory. When men so pray they do not faint. They mount up with wings as eagles, they run without weariness, they tramp the hardest, roughest road, and do not faint.”
-G. Campbell Morgan sermon titled, “Prayer or Fainting.” The Westminster Pulpit, Volume 3, Morgan, pg. 55-56
