Fervency of Spirit

William Law, in J. S. Baxter, Explore the Book, p. 236

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 be; nor the music of our prayers, how sweet our voice may be; nor the logic of our prayers, now argumentative they may be; nor the method of our prayers, how orderly they may be&md;which God cares for. Fervency of spirit is that which availeth much.
