QOTD: Quote of the Day

"Prayer should be the breath of our breathing, the thought of our thinking, the soul of our feeling, the life of our living, the sound of our hearing, and the growth of our growing. Prayer is length without end, width without bounds, height without top, and depth without bottom; illimitable in its breadth, exhaustless in height, fathomless in depths, and infinite in extension. Oh, for determined men and women who will rise early and really burn for God. Oh for a faith that will sweep into heaven with the early dawning of morning and have ships from a shoreless sea loaded in the soul's harbor ere the ordinary laborer has knocked the dew from the scythe or the lackluster has turned from his pallet of straw to spread nature's treasures of fruit before the early buyers. Oh for the Holy Spirit to so work in us a passion for His presence. Oh that the fruit of Gospel transformation might make of us men and women of prayer." --Homer W. Hodge

Anyone know the source of this quote?

It is from a collection of Hodge's writings on prayer, "The Man of God in Prayer." It is also quoted in two places in "Men and Prayer" by E.M. Bounds.
