This eBook from the Gutenberg Project consists of approximately 158 pages of information about Quiet Talks on Prayer.

How much prayer meant to Jesus!  It was not only His regular habit, but His resort in every emergency, however slight or serious.  When perplexed He prayed.  When hard pressed by work He prayed.  When hungry for fellowship He found it in prayer.  He chose His associates and received His messages upon His knees.  If tempted, He prayed.  If criticised, He prayed.  If fatigued in body or wearied in spirit, He had recourse to His one unfailing habit of prayer.  Prayer brought Him unmeasured power at the beginning, and kept the flow unbroken and undiminished.  There was no emergency, no difficulty, no necessity, no temptation that would not yield to prayer, as He practiced it.  Shall not we, who have been tracing these steps in His prayer life, go back over them again and again until we breathe in His very spirit of prayer?  And shall we not, too, ask Him daily to teach us how to pray, and then plan to get alone with Him regularly that He may have opportunity to teach us, and we the opportunity to practice His teaching?
