Isa 43:10 Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me

You Are Being Summoned To Pray

I therefore call you, friend, to remember the ministry of prayer. 

The times are wakening us to the great need of it, and we must not miss the summons of the times. 

Some of you perhaps have never really prayed, though you have always kept to the daily habit of it. 

Some of you may have ceased long years ago even to preserve the form of prayer. 

And all of us, however we have been serving, know that our greatest failure has been here, for none of us have been praying as we should. 

My brother, God is using these present times to bring thousands back to prayer again. 

In every country of the world today there are multitudes praying who never prayed before. 

And if only you, with all your opportunities, will join in that mighty ministry of prayer, we shall yet live to see such blessings given as will make it bliss for us to be alive. 

It is not easy, but nothing high is easy. 

There is little time, but you can make time. 

For anything your heart is really set on, it is wonderful how time can be made always. 

Blessings are waiting us, and power is waiting us, and I believe that peace is waiting us, waiting and ready for that hour when God is given His own place again. 

When our life is drawing to a close and we look back over the years that we have had, there will be a thousand things we shall regret, for they will seem to us then to have been vanity. 

But there is one thing that we shall not regret even on the margin of the grave, and that is the time we gave to prayer. 

Then it will be far more real to us than it was in the hour when we were praying. 

Then it will be far more real to us than things that once were of supreme importance. 

Then we shall wonder at our inveterate folly in having toiled and served and labored for the Master, and been so forgetful of the amazing promises that He has given to everyone who prays. 

My brother and sister, anticipate that hour. 

It is coming swiftly and it is coming surely. 

Live today as you would like to have lived when you look back from the end upon it all. 

And remember that whatever Christ hath taught you, by precept, by example, He hath taught you this, that men ought always to pray and not to faint.
