John Bunyan’s Dying Words Concerning Prayer


In all your prayers forget not to thank the Lord for his mercies.
When thou prayest, rather let thy hearts be without words, than thy words without a heart.
Prayer will make a man cease from sin, or sin will entice a man to cease from prayer.
The spirit of prayer is more precious than treasures of gold and silver.
Pray often, for prayer is a shield to the soul, a sacrifice to God, and a scourge for Satan.

John Bunyan, vol. 1, Bunyan’s Dying Sayings (Bellingham, WA: Logos Bible Software, 2006), 65.
