“Because your heart was penitent,
and you humbled yourself before the Lord,
when you heard how I spoke against this place
I also have heard you, declares the Lord.”
(from 2 Kings 22:19)
“We have heard of the pride of Moab—
how proud he is!—
of his arrogance, his pride, and his insolence . . .
When Moab presents himself,
when he wearies himself on the high place,
when he comes to his sanctuary to pray,
he will not prevail.”
The Lord alone is worthy!
“Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created (Revelation 5:11).”
We are entirely dependent on God for spiritual results.
“Solid, lasting missionary work is done on our knees.”*

“There is a living God. He has spoken in His Word. He means just what he says and will do all that he has promised.”*
For all the promises of God find their Yes in him. That is why it is through him that we utter our Amen to God for his glory (2 Corinthians 1:20).

“The old man began to suffer from a strange unaccountable pain . . . At last someone said, ‘Why not pray to God about it?’
They did . . . and there was peace. The pain passed away.”*
*Mrs. Howard Taylor, Behind the Ranges, p. 68.
“At any leisure moment you would see him reading from his leather-bound pocket book, in which he had a long list of names for whom he prayed daily. He remembers them all before God in silent prayer.”*
Put a list on your phone (most of us take them everywhere) and pray for people whenever you have a second!
Continue steadfastly in prayer . . . making the best use of the time (Colossians 4:1-5).
