Prayer. It raises man to God and brings God down to man.

Our church, as do many others, has prayer service each Wednesday night. Through the month of February we have a special emphasis on prayer. With that theme in mind, here’s a great quote from George Whitefield on the subject of personal prayer…

“O prayer. O prayer, prayer! It brings and keeps God and man together; it raises man to God, and brings God down to man. If you would keep up your walk with God, pray, pray without ceasing. Be much in secret, set prayer. When you are about the common business of life, be much in ejaculatory prayer. Send, from time to time, short letter posts to Heaven, upon the wings of faith. They will reach the very heart of God, and will return to you loaded with blessings.”
