God wants us to pray. Prayer acknowledges our dependence on God. Today’s devotional tells us a real need of today’s local churches.
What the Church needs today!
“They all joined together constantly in prayer” Acts 1:14
“They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.” Acts 2:42
The church is looking for better methods—God is looking for holier men.
What the Church needs today is not more or better machinery, not new organizations or more and novel methods–but men mighty in prayer.
The Holy Spirit does not flow through methods–but through men.
He does not come on machinery–but on men.
He does not anoint plans–but men, men of prayer.
Prayer is our most formidable weapon, the thing which makes all else we do efficient.
“The prayer meeting is the gauge of the Church’s spiritual condition. You may always test your church’s prosperity–by the number who assemble to pray!” Charles Spurgeon
