Wide-mouthed prayer

“I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.”
(Psa. 81:10)

“God may be said to fill this wide mouth of faith in prayer, when he grants the desires of the heart, gives his people what they will, even very largely and abundantly, yea, more than they can ask or think…”
-John Gill

“He had proved his power and his good will; it remained only for his people to believe in him and ask large things of him. If their expectations were enlarged to the utmost degree, they could not exceed the bounty of the Lord. Little birds in the nest open their mouths widely enough, and perhaps the parent birds fail to fill them, but it will never be so with our God. His treasures of grace are inexhaustible…”
-C. H. Spurgeon

Thanks for reading.
