“Pray without ceasing.” 1 Thessalonians 5:17

If we have not got grace enough — it is because we do not pray enough. For most true it is, we need not strive to move God to compassion and extort, as it were, by our prayers, the blessings which He has promised. Very far from it.

He is every minute communicating Himself to us; in every word, He holds forth Christ and every good thing to us. But we must always have a soul hungering after Christ, and by incessant prayer stretch out the hand of faith to receive Him. This is chiefly to be understood of the inward desires and groanings of our spirit — but we must not omit to pour out our supplications daily, as often as we can, by words; else our secret mental prayers, at last, may become so secret as to cease entirely.

Prayer is the breath of the soul — the vital evidence whereby we know of its health and life, and without which it must quickly die. O for grace to pray without ceasing, and thus enjoy incessant communion with God.

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.
