Mission Impossible: Accepted…PRAY!

”Every step in the progress of missions is directly traceable to prayer.” -Arthur Tappan Pierson “We can reach our world, if we will. The greatest lack today is not people or funds. The greatest need is prayer.” -Wesley L. Duewel      We have programs in place. We go to conferences. We read copious amounts of articles on the subject.

Everything I Needed To Know About Prayer, I Learned From A Five Year Old

“Prayerfulness sees no denominational divide, no theological grey area, no intellectual superiority. Those devoted to prayerfulness see the heart of God, see His character, see the beautiful sacrifice of His Son above all else.” -Clayton Elliott   Have you ever heard a 5 year old pray?

Phil. 4-8- “Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely; if anything is …

Bless ’em

    BLESS ‘em   I have been benefited by praying for others; for by making an errand to God for them I have gotten something for myself.                                                                                                 -Samuel Rutherford   Have you ever been told by someone with the greatest sincerity, “I’ll pray for you” only to, the very next moment, question if they really will pray for you?
