by / Friday, 08 September 2017 / Published in Worship

The forces of good and evil are contending for the world.  If we would, we could add to the conquering power of the army of righteousness, and yet our lips are sealed, our hands hang listlessly by our side, and we jeopardize the very cause in which we profess to be deeply interested by holding back from the prayer chamber.   —E.M. Bounds, Purpose in Prayer


How easy it is to forget we are dealing with a divine Person, not a heavenly mail-order catalogue.  When we focus too much on what we need, we are bound to neglect the One whom we need.    —Richard L. Pratt, Jr., Pray with Your Eyes Open
