John Bunyan On Prayer 

    John Bunyan (1628 – 1688), author of The Pilgrim’s Progress, offered these insights regarding prayer:

  In prayer it is better to have a heart without words than words without a heart.

  Pray often, for prayer is a shield to the soul, a sacrifice to God, and a scourge for Satan.

  Prayer will make a man cease from sin, or sin will entice a man to cease from prayer.

  In all your prayers forget not to thank the Lord for His mercies.

  The spirit of prayer is more precious than treasures of gold and silver.

  The truths that I know best I have learned on my knees.  I never know a thing well, till it is burned into my heart by prayer.

  To pray rightly, you must make God your hope, stay, and all.
