It is scarce conceivable how strait the way is wherein God leads them that follow him; and how dependent on him we must be, unless we are wanting in our faithfulness to him.” ― John Wesley, “Bear up the hands that hang down, by faith and prayer; support the tottering knees.

As a very little dust will disorder a clock, and the least sand will obscure our sight, so the least grain of sin which is upon the heart will hinder its right motion towards God.” ― John Wesley, “When I was young I was sure of everything; in a few years, having been mistaken a thousand times, I was not half so sure of most things as I was before; at present, I am hardly sure of anything but what God has revealed to me.” ― John Wesley, “Bring me a worm that can comprehend a man, and then I will show you a man that can comprehend the Triune God.” ― John Wesley, “As to matters of dress, I would recommend one never to be first in the fashion nor the last out of it.” ― John Wesley, “The general rule of interpreting Scripture is this: the literal sense of every text is to be taken, if it be not contrary to some other texts.

One who always prays is ever giving praise, whether in ease or pain, both for prosperity and for the greatest adversity. Get all you can without hunting your soul, your body, or your neighbor. “Where there is no vision of eternity, there is no prayer for the perishing.”  David Smithers, 45.

Here Wesley is assuming the primary things we seek for ourselves have to do with salvation: forgiveness of sins, new life in Christ, guidance in how to live faithful lives, peace, joy and love. Prayer is how we remain in communication with God and grow in our relationship with God. This does not mean Wesley thought it improper to pray for other things for ourselves. I have so much to do that I spend several hours in prayer before I am able to do it. “All great soul-winners have been men of much and mighty prayer, and all great revivals have been preceded and carried out by persevering, prevailing knee-work in the closet.”  Samuel Logan Brengle. And now, O glorious and blessed God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, You are mine and I am Yours. 40. Proceed with much prayer, and your way will be made plain. But Wesley does insist that God answers prayers. “I have seen many men work without praying, though I have never seen any good come out of it; but I have never seen a man pray without working.”  James HudsonTaylor, 29. John Emory, Thomas Jackson (1831). “Prayer is the real work, Evangelism is just the mopping up.” – Unknown, 6. 9. For these promised gifts, our prayers are needed “not so much to move God — who is always more ready to give than you to ask — as to move yourselves, that you may be willing and ready to receive the good things he has prepared for you” (“Upon Our Lord’s Sermon on the Mount VI,” 11.5). I have to go to God in prayer with tears in my eyes, and say, 'O God, forgive me,' or 'Help me.'.

Do not be diligent in one kind of prayer and negligent in others... let us use all. Prayer continues in the desire of the heart, though the understanding be employed on outward things. On every occasion of uneasiness, we should retire to prayer, that we may give place to the grace and light of God and then form our resolutions, without being in any pain about what success they may have.

“The word of God is the food by which prayer is nourished and made strong.”  E. M. Bounds, 32.

Never trust anyone completely but God.

Trust in God; trust also in me. I do not mean those who talk about prayer; nor those who say they believe in prayer; nor those who explain prayer; but I mean those who actually take the time to pray.
