Prayer never obtains anything from God unless faith is present
And again, faith never receives anything from God unless prayer makes a petition.
Prayer and faith work harmoniously together -
both are necessary in their distinct functions,
but are quite different in their nature.
Prayer is the voice of the soul,
while faith is the hand.
It is only through prayer that the soul can establish communion with its Creator;
and it is only through faith that spiritual victories are won.
Prayer knocks at the door of grace,
while faith opens it.
Prayer contacts God,
while faith obtains an audience.
Prayer makes a petition, while faith presses through the multitudes to
touch the Hem of His Garment,
and receives from His giving Hand.
Prayer quotes the promise,
while faith boldly proclaims the fulfillment of that promise.
