"GOD'S great plan for the redemption of mankind is  as much  bound up to prayer for its prosperity and success as when the decree  creating the movement was issued from the Father, bearing on its  frontage the  imperative, universal and eternal condition, "Ask  of me, and I will give thee  the heathen for thy inheritance and  the uttermost part of the earth for thy  possession." In many places  an alarming state of things has come to pass, in  that the many  who are enrolled in our churches are not praying men and women.  Many of those occupying prominent positions in church life are  not praying men.  It is greatly to feared that much of the work  of the Church is being done by  those who are perfect strangers  to the closet. Small wonder that the work does  not succeed. While  it may be true that many in the Church say prayers, it is  equally  true that their praying is of the stereotyped order. Their prayers  may  be charged with sentiment, but they are tame, timid, and without  fire or force.  Even this sort of praying is done by a few straggling  men to be found at  prayer-meetings. Those whose names are to be  found bulking large in our great  Church assemblies are not men  noted for their praying habits. Yet the entire  fabric of the work  in which they are engaged has, perforce, to depend on the  adequacy  of prayer. This fact is similar to the crisis which would be created  were a country to have to admit in the face of an invading foe  that it cannot  fight and have no knowledge of the weapons whereby  war is to be waged. In all  God's plans for human redemption, He  proposes that men pray. The men are to pray  in every place, in  the church, in the closet, in the home, on sacred days and on  secular  days. All things and everything are dependent on the measure of  men's  praying. Prayer is the genius and mainspring of life. We  pray as we live; we  live as we pray. Life will never be finer  than the quality of the closet. The  mercury of life will rise  only by the warmth of the closet. Persistent  non-praying eventually  will depress life below zero."
 -E. M. Bounds
