Perhaps these words about prayer will challenge you to pray more fervently:
“Prayer is the most powerful form of social action because God responds directly to praying people. Prayer is the most powerful part of mission to unreached peoples, because God does what only He can do. Even in the most hopeless of situations, He breaks the false dominion of the enemy, brings spiritual light, and breathes life for lasting social transformation.”
