R.A. Torrey: Just Pray

Born in North Carolina, R.A. Torrey was an American evangelist, pastor, educator, and writer. He helped establish Biola University and promoted that Christians should live a “higher life” by continually acting in a holy manner. Above all, he told his fellow Christians to pray. Here are are my top 10 quotes from R.A. Torrey:

“The reason why many fail in battle is because they wait until the hour of battle. The reason why others succeed is because they have gained their victory on their knees long before the battle came. Anticipate your battles; fight them on your knees before temptation comes, and you will always have victory.”

“The truly wise man is he who believes the Bible against the opinions of any man. If the Bible says one thing, and any body of men says another, the wise man will decide, “This book is the Word of him who cannot lie.”

“All that God is, and all that God has, are at the disposal of player. Prayer can do anything that God can do, and as God can do anything, prayer is omnipotent.”

“The chief purpose of prayer is that God may be glorified in the answer.”

“If loving God with all our heart and soul and might is the greatest commandment, then it follows that not loving Him that way is the greatest sin.”

“If we think of the Holy Spirit only as an impersonal power or influence, then our thought will constantly be, how can I get hold of and use the Holy Spirit; but if we think of Him in the biblical way as a divine Person, infinitely wise, infinitely holy, infinitely tender, then our thought will constantly be, ‘How can the Holy Spirit get hold of and use me?'”

“Oh, men and women, pray through; pray through! Do not just begin to pray and pray a little while and throw up your hands and quit; but pray and pray and pray until God bends the heavens and comes down.”

“Prayer that is born of meditation upon the Word of God is the prayer that soars upward most easily to God’s listening ears.”

“Pray for great things, expect great things, work for great things, but above all pray.”
