Beloved, this saying is very true.  A prayerless  Christian is a powerless  one.  While a prayerful Christian is a powerful one.  Where do you belong?    It is important that you  be like Christ.  He began His ministry  by praying.

Luke 3:21  Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that Jesus also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened,

He sustained His ministry  by praying.

Mark 1:35  And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed.

Mar 6:46  And when he had sent them away, he departed into a mountain to pray.

Luk 6:12  And it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God.

He ended His ministry by praying.

Luk 22:41Luk 22:44  And he was withdrawn from them about a stone’s cast, and kneeled down, and prayed, Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done. And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him. And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.

Heb 5:7Heb 5:8  Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared; Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;

Beloved,  if  prayer was the lifestyle and heartbeat of Christ.  You do not have any excuse to be found wanting  in the place of prayer.

Luke 18:1   And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;

There  is nothing wrong when you ask others  to pray for you. But you yourself must be  a man or woman of prayer.  Jesus asked His disciples  to pray for Him. But He Himself was a  man of  prayer.  Paul apostle asked   Philemon and others  to pray  for  him,  to be realised  from prison, but he himself was a prayer  warrior.  See it.

Phm 1:22  But withal prepare me also a lodging: for I trust that through your prayers I shall be given unto you.

Beloved,  if there is  anything  God delight’s  to  see believers of all ages and you in particular doing,  it is communing  with Him in prayer as a beloved child to a caring  Father.  See it.

Isaiah 65:24  And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.

Jer 29:12Jer 29:13  Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

Jeremiah 33:3   Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

When you pray,  you can move  God to  save the  worst of  sinners.
Abraham  saved  Lot  from destruction of Sodon,  when he prayed for him

Genesis 19:29  And it came to pass, when God destroyed the cities of the plain, that God remembered Abraham, and sent Lot out of the midst of the overthrow, when he overthrew the cities in the which Lot dwelt.

Moses saved the whole nation of Israel and idolatrous  Aaron, when he prayed for them

Deu 9:18Deu 9:20  And I fell down before the Lord, as at the first, forty days and forty nights: I did neither eat bread, nor drink water, because of all your sins which ye sinned, in doing wickedly in the sight of the Lord, to provoke him to anger. For I was afraid of the anger and hot displeasure, wherewith the Lord was wroth against you to destroy you. But the Lord hearkened unto me at that time also. And the Lord was very angry with Aaron to have destroyed him: and I prayed for Aaron also the same time.

Rahab the prostitute stopped the destruction of her life and members of  her household,  when she prayed

Jos 2:11Jos 2:13 And as soon as we had heard these things, our hearts did melt, neither did there remain any more courage in any man, because of you: for the Lord your God, he is God in heaven above, and in earth beneath. Now therefore, I pray you, swear unto me by the Lord, since I have shewed you kindness, that ye will also shew kindness unto my father’s house, and give me a true token: And that ye will save alive my father, and my mother, and my brethren, and my sisters, and all that they have, and deliver our lives from death.

See ,she and her household were the only people that were not destroyed in Jericho

Jos 6:22Jos 6:25  But Joshua had said unto the two men that had spied out the country, Go into the harlot’s house, and bring out thence the woman, and all that she hath, as ye sware unto her. The young men that were spies went in, and brought out Rahab, and her father, and her mother, and her brethren, and all that she had; and they brought out all her kindred, and left them without the camp of Israel. They burnt the city with fire, and all that was therein: only the silver, and the gold, and the vessels of brass and of iron, they put into the treasury of the house of the Lord. JAnd Joshua saved Rahab the harlot alive, and her father’s household, and all that she had; and she dwelleth in Israel even unto this day; because she hid the messengers, which Joshua sent to spy out Jericho.

Beloved,  your unsaved  spouse,  children,  parents,  siblings,  in laws,  close and extended  family members shall be  saved,  if you will pray for them.

Romans 10:1  Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.

BUT THEN  REMEMBER THIS.  DON’T EVER  EVER  FORGET IT. A praying man will not be sinning.  A sinning man will not be praying.   The prayer of a sinner  is an abomination to God.  It will never be heard.

Pro 15:8  The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord:but the prayer of the upright is his delight.

Isa 59:1Isa 59:2  Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:  But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.

Zechariah 7:13  Therefore it is come to pass, that as he cried, and they would not hear; so they cried, and I would not hear, saith the Lord of hosts:

John 9:31  Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.

But then ,  you are not a sinner  so pray  and God will answer all your prayers and you shall advance the  eternal  purpose of  God on earth in Jesus  name.

Psalms 4:3  But know that the Lord hath set apart him that is godly for himself: the Lord will hear when I call unto him.

Dearly beloved, Jesus our Lord lived a lifestyle of advancing the eternal purposes of  God on earth,  through  persistent and  prevailing prayers,  during His earthly ministry.  See some instances.
He prayed for Peter  from been sifted by satan.

Luk 22:31Luk 22:32  And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.

He prayed for the  forgiveness of His persecutors  on the  cross.

Luke 23:34  Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.

He prayed for Bible days believers  and by extension believers  of all ages,  most importantly you. See them

John 17:9  I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.

Jn 17:15Jn 17:17  I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

John 17:24  Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.

The blessed Holy Spirit  intending to  encourage believers  of all ages,  especially you, about the  potency of their prayers in advancing the eternal purposes  of God on earth, inspired apostle Paul to pen this  very important prayer . See it.

Phm 1:22  But withal prepare me also a lodging: for I trust that through your prayers I shall be given unto you.

Now see  yourself,  how God eternal  purposes  were advanced on earth,  during the  Bible days
1. Praying in anticipation for the promised baptism of Holy  Spirit. 

Act 1:12Act 1:14  Then returned they unto Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is from Jerusalem a sabbath day’s journey. And when they were come in, they went up into an upper room, where abode both Peter, and James, and John, and Andrew, Philip, and Thomas, Bartholomew, and Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon Zelotes, and Judas the brother of James. These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren.

2. Prayed for the selection of  apostle  that replaced Judas .

Act 1:23Act 1:26  And they appointed two, Joseph called Barsabas, who was surnamed Justus, and Matthias. They prayed, and said, Thou, Lord, which knowest the hearts of all men, shew whether of these two thou hast chosen, That he may take part of this ministry and apostleship, from which Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his own place. They gave forth their lots; and the lot fell upon Matthias; and he was numbered with the eleven apostles.

3. Praying for boldness to preach the Gospel. 

Act 4:23Act 4:33  And being let go, they went to their own company, and reported all that the chief priests and elders had said unto them. And when they heard that, they lifted up their voice to God with one accord, and said, Lord, thou art God, which hast made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all that in them is: Who by the mouth of thy servant David hast said, Why did the heathen rage, and the people imagine vain things? The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord, and against his Christ. For of a truth against thy holy child Jesus, whom thou hast anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together, For to do whatsoever thy hand and thy counsel determined before to be done. Now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word, By stretching forth thine hand to heal; that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus.  when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness. The multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common. With great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all.

4.  Praying for restoration of  bavksliders. 

Gal 4:19  My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you,

5. Praying for  Christian experiences for believers  

1 Thessalonians 3:10  Night and day praying exceedingly that we might see your face, and might perfect that which is lacking in your faith?

Colossians 4:12  Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Christ, saluteth you, always labouring fervently for you in prayers, that ye may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God.

Dearly beloved, it is your turn to do sane.  May the good  Lord help you in Jesus name .

1 Samuel 12:23  Moreover as for me, God forbid that I should sin against the Lord in ceasing to pray for you: but I will teach you the good and the right way:

Friend, your earnest  desire to be part of the dawning rapture,  shall be  granted in Jesus name.  But then you can not afford  to be slack in the  place of prayers. You will continue to edify  yourself,  as you engage tirelessly in advancing God’s  eternal  purposes  on  earth.  See what to do at this end time.

Jud 1:22Jud 1:23 And of some have compassion, making a difference: And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.

Jam 5:19Jam 5:20  Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him; Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.

You spend time personally  praying for yourself and  others, them like  apostle  Paul,  encourage others to  pray for you .

Phm 1:22  But withal prepare me also a lodging: for I trust that through your prayers I shall be given unto you.

When you do these, you can be sure God will continue to  answer your prayers.

1 John 3:22  And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.

So till Jesus comes,  engage ceaselessly and tirelessly  in praying the following ways :
1. To be kept  from falling.  

Jude 1:24  Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,

2  Pray not to look back like Lot”s wife and  Demas. 

Luke 9:62  And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.

3. As iniquities  abound in the last days, pray for  grace  to endure to the  end. 

Mat 24:12Mat 24:13  And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

Pray for  grace   to remain undefiled  to the end.

2 Corinthians 9:8  And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:

The good Lord shall help you in particular in Jesus name.
