Young man: Be honest; train yourself for useful work; love God.

Prayer is the most important activity a born-again Christian can perform.
It should head your list of priorities, for certainly the world around us desperately needs prayer. Prayer will open the door for God to do a glorious work in these last days. Prayer will stem the tide of evil.

God does not... give people positions or jobs or... good conditions such as they desire; they must do that for themselves..

Perhaps the greatest barrier to revival on a large scale is the fact that we are to interested in a great display. We want an exhibition; God is looking for a man who will throw himself entirely on God.
