If there is one thought with regard to the Church of Christ which at times comes to me with overwhelming sorrow if there is one thought in regard to my own life of which I am ashamed if there is one thought of which I feel that the Church of Christ has not accepted it and not grasped it if there is one thought which makes me pray to God Oh teach us by Thy grace new thingsit is the wonderful power that prayer is meant to have in the kingdom. . . . And that is the law of the kingdomthe King upon the throne the servants upon the footstool.
Famous Quotes from Andrew Murray

Prayer is the quiet persistent living of our life of desire and faith in the presence of our God.
Our forgiving love toward men is the evidence of Gods forgiving love in us. It is a necessary condition of the prayer of faith.
The Lord gave the wonderful promise of the free use of His Name with the Father in conjunction with doing His works. The disciple who lives only for Jesus work and Kingdom for His will and honor will be given the power to appropriate the promise. Anyone grasping the promise only when he wants something very special for himself will be disappointed because he is making Jesus the servant of his own comfort. But whoever wants to pray the effective prayer of faith because he needs it for the work of the Master will learn it because he has made himself the servant of his Lords interests.
Each time before you intercede be quiet first and worship God in His glory. Think of what He can do and how He delights to hear the prayers of His redeemed people. Think of your place and privilege in Christ and expect great things
The sooner I learn to forget myself in the desire that He may be glorified the richer will be the blessing that prayer will bring to myself. No one ever loses by what he sacrifices to the Father.
Answered prayer is the interchange of love between the Father and His child.
The great thing in prayer is to feel that we are putting our supplications into the bosom of omnipotent love.
