You do not have because you do not ask God...
James 4:2b

True praying involves serious attention and time,
which flesh and blood do not relish. Few people
have such strong fiber that they will make a costly
outlay when inferior work will pass just as well 
in the marketplace.

To be little with God is to be little for God. It takes
much time for the fullness of God to flow into the 
spirit. Short devotions cut the pipe of God's full 
flow. We live shabbily because we pray meagerly. 
This is not a day of prayer. Few men pray. In these 
days of hurry and bustle men will not take the time 
to pray. Prayer is out-of-date, almost a lost art. 
EM Bounds 1835-1913
He was a minister in the American Methodist
Episcopal Church. He served as a captain in the
Confederate Army. Today he's best known for
his many books on prayer, especially,
Power Through Prayer 

Reader, if it was true then, just how more true it is
now. We live in dangerous times full of anxiety--
admit it--and we desperately need a powerful move
of God in this nation.
