Quote from Rev. Musgrave Brown, vicar of one of the leading Church of England parishes around 1924. “Prayer is the greatest thing anyone can do, is it not? And real prayer takes more out of a person than anything else, does it not?”
“Yes, it often does. Real praying is a costly exercise, but it pays far more than it costs. It is not easy work, but it is the most profitable of all work. We can accomplish more by time and strength put into prayer than we can by putting the same amount of time and strength into anything else.” – R.A. Torrey (page 32)
