 Call unto me,

and I will answer thee,

and show thee great and mighty things,

which thou knowest not.





But prayer (Acts 12:5).

But prayer is the link that connects us with God.

This is the bridge that spans every gulf and bears us over every abyss of danger or of need.

How significant the picture of the Apostolic Church:

Peter in prison,

the Jews triumphant,

Herod supreme,

the arena of martyrdom awaiting the dawning of the morning to drink up the apostle’s blood,

and everything else against it.

“But prayer was made unto God without ceasing.”





And what was the sequel?

The prison o p e n,

the apostle f r e e,

the Jews b a f f l e d,

the wicked king eaten of worms,

a spectacle of hidden retribution,

and the Word of God rolling on in greater victory.

Do we know the power of our supernatural weapon?

Do we dare to use it with the authority of a faith that commands as well as asks?

God baptize us with holy audacity and Divine confidence!

He is not wanting great men,

but He is wanting men who will dare to prove the greatness of their God.

But God!

But prayer!

–A. B. Simpson




Psalm 78:41


they turned back and tempted God,

and limited the Holy One of Israel.







Beware in your prayer,

above everything,

of limiting God,

not only by unbelief,

but by fancying that you know what He can do.

E x p e c t  u n e x p e c t e d  t h i n g s,

above all that we ask or think.

Each time you intercede,

be quiet first and worship God in His glory.

Think of what He can do,

of how He delights to hear Christ,

of your place in Christ; and expect great things.

–Andrew Murray






Our prayers are God’s opportunities.
Are you in sorrow?

Prayer can make your affliction sweet and strengthening.

Are you in gladness?

Prayer can add to your joy a celestial perfume.

Are you in extreme danger from outward or inward enemies?

Prayer can set at your right hand

an angel whose touch could shatter a millstone

into smaller dust than the flour it grinds,

and whose glance could lay an army low.




What will prayer do for you?

I answer: All that God can do for you.

“Ask what I shall give thee.”





 Wrestling prayer can wonders do,

Bring relief in deepest straits;

Prayer can force a passage through

Iron bars and brazen gates.






“The ability of God is beyond our prayers, beyond our largest

prayers! I have been thinking of some of the petitions that have

entered into my supplication innumerable times. What have I asked

for? I have asked for a cupful, and the ocean remains! I have asked

for a sunbeam, and the sun abides! My best asking falls

immeasurably short of my Father’s giving; it is beyond that we can


– J.H. Jowett





Rom 10:9-10

That if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus,

and shall believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead,

you shall be saved.

For with the heart man believes unto righteousness;

and with the mouth confession is made unto Salvation.

Rom 10:13

For whosoever shall call upon the Name of the Lord shall be saved!






A simple prayer from your heart to make Jesus your Savior:

Lord, I know that I’m a sinner-

I believe that Jesus Christ died in my place and paid for all my sins-

Save me now and make me Your child.



The day you encounter Jesus

is your last day alone!
