“In prayer, we cannot convince God to do things outside of His will, only things that are inside of His will.” －Johnson and Pearl
“Biblical prayer does not move God to do our will, but move us to do His.” －Johnson and Pearl
“Biblical prayer does not convince God to do our will, but convinces us to do His will. ” －Johnson and Pearl
“Correct prayer is asking God to do things inside His will; incorrect prayer is asking God to things outside of His will.” －Johnson and Pearl
“True prayer was never meant to convince God to do our will, but to convince us to do His.” －Johnson and Pearl
“Prayer is not true prayer until one has truly repented, been born again, died to his selfish will, and starting asking for God’s will to be done on earth.” －Johnson and Pearl
“Most Christians, especially the fake Christians, have no manners and respect when it comes to praying to God. When talking to a king or president, you can only make polite requests and not selfish demands. Likewise, when praying to God, you can only make polite requests inside God’s will, and not selfish demands outside God’s will.”
“Since prayer is submitting to , agreeing with, and executing God’s will; we can importune God, cry to God day and night, and pray continually. We can continue to agree with God’s will and continue to execute God’s will through prayer.”(Luke 11:8; Luke 18:7; Acts 1:14) －Johnson and Pearl
Luke 11:8 King James Version
I say unto you, Though he will not rise and give him, because he is his friend, yet because of his importunity he will rise and give him as many as he needeth.
Luke 11:8 New International Version
I tell you, even though he will not get up and give you the bread because of friendship, yet because of your shameless audacity[a] he will surely get up and give you as much as you need.
“We can do nothing without prayer. All things can be done by importunate prayer. That is the teaching of Jesus Christ”. -E. M. Bounds
“He who is too busy to pray will be too busy to live a holy life.” -E.M. Bounds
“Don’t pray when you feel like it. Have an appointment with the Lord and keep it. A man is powerful on his knees.” -Corrie ten Boom
“We do not pray at all until we are at our wits’ end.” －Oswald Chambers
The quickly way to get a solution to your problem
“For a Christian who has learned how to pray correctly, the quickly way to get a solution to your problem is to quickly go to your prayer closet and pray. And don’t come out until you received an answer from God!” －Johnson and Pearl
“How fast can you get a solution from God depends on how much you desire God’s will and how fast you can fully surrender to Jesus.” －Johnson and Pearl
Matthew 6:6 King James Version
6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
馬太福音 6:6 你禱告的時候，要進你的內屋，關上門，禱告你在暗中的父，你父在暗中察看，必然報答你。
