It is “the effective fervent prayer of a righteous man” that avails much (James 5:16). Robert Murray McCheyene said, “What a man is in his prayer-closet is what he is.” No Christian is greater than his/her prayer life, and his/her prayer life can be no greater than his personal life (Ronald Dunn, Don’t Just Stand There
