“Watch therefore, and pray always.” Luke 21:36

“Let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us.” Hebrews 12:1

The hearts of men are not like their clocks, which need, at most, to be wound up only once a day. They are liable to become inactive and to fall into disorder every moment and must therefore be searched and excited, without intermission. We should accompany all our actions with prayer, strictly examining the principles from where they flow, and anxious that those principles may be of the highest order. If we proceed according to this rule, accepting every monition from above, we shall both avoid many severe chastisements, and glorify our Father who is in heaven. A Christian has daily his proper burden, like a clock its weights, by which the flesh is kept under, so that the spirit may rise. Therefore, when any trouble occurs, he looks upon it as his weight for the day, to stir him up to the exercise of prayer and meditation on the word of God.

O Lord, grant that I may always bear Your easy yoke and never be the cause of my own distress and dullness. Quicken me in Your way and fill me with life and love.

Be Ready Always...

to give a reason for the Hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15).  When you can’t share the gospel with your words, share it by leaving tracts that tell people about God's grace.

When leaving a tract, always be diligent to pray about the short gospel message. Pray that it be found by someone who is in need of Jesus’ saving grace, and pray that the person will have a tender heart and open ears to receive the gift Jesus desires to give them.  

By the power of the Holy Spirit, even a small tract can help in turning a broken sinner from darkness to light.
