“It is not the arithmetic of our prayers — how many they are;
nor the rhetoric of our prayers — how eloquent they are;
nor the geometry of our prayers — how long they are;
nor the music of our prayers — how sweet our voice may be;
nor the logic of our prayers — how proper they may be;
nor the method of our prayers — how orderly they may be;
nor even the theology of our prayers — how good the doctrine may be, which God cares for. It is only fervency in prayer, which will make a man prevalent with God. Fervent prayer hits the mark, and pierces the walls of Heaven! ‘The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much!’”  ~ James 5:16
