No Substitute For Prayer

Jesus said, “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened” (Matthew 7:7-8).

If you need one thing in this life, you can perhaps substitute something else, but there is no substitute for prayer—not eloquence, intellect, energy, enthusiasm, nor intention. There is no substitute for prayer.

I believe the greatest resource in the world is prayer. We think if somehow we could harness lightning, somehow tap into the resources of the mighty tides of the ocean as they ebb and flow, we would have awesome power. But the greatest untapped resource is not earthly energy, it is prevailing prayer.

I don’t have a failure in my life except that of a prayer failure. I don’t have a sin in my life that proper prayer wouldn’t have avoided. I don’t have a need in my life that cannot be met through prevailing prayer. What fools we are if we don’t pray!
