10 Quotes from Billy Graham on Prayer

Billy Graham once said that the most important steps in preparing for an evangelistic outreach are: prayer, prayer, prayer. Here are ten quotes by Mr. Graham on that topic.

“In the morning, prayer is the key that opens to us the treasures of God’s mercies and blessings; in the evening, it is the key that shuts us up under His protection and safeguard.”

“If [Jesus] felt that He had to pray, how much more do we need to pray!”

“True prayer is a way of life, not just for use in cases of emergency. Make it a habit, and when the need arises you will be in practice.”

“Prayer is more than a wish; it is the voice of faith directed to God.”

“Have you ever said, ‘Well, all we can do now is pray’? … When we come to the end of ourselves, we come to the beginning of God.”

“We are to pray in times of adversity, lest we become faithless and unbelieving. We are to pray in times of prosperity, lest we become boastful and proud. We are to pray in times of danger, lest we become fearful and doubting. We are to pray in times of security, lest we become self-sufficient.”

“Heaven is full of answers to prayer for which no one ever bothered to ask.”

“This should be the motto of every follower of Jesus Christ. No matter how dark and hopeless a situation might seem, never stop praying. ”

“No matter how dark and hopeless a situation might seem, never stop praying.”

“Whether prayer changes our situation or not, one thing is certain: Prayer will change us!”
