I am working through a lot of issues related to prayer this week, and will post a few quotes and a couple conclusions of my own later.
In prayer there is not only an outgoing of the soul to God, in acts of faith, love and confidence, but there is an actual communication from God to the soul. Prayer is a holy converse - a fellowship with God. One hour spent in prayer will accomplish more good than many employed in study or labor.
