Power In Prayer
By Octavius Winslow
It is in this holy duty of aiming in all things to please God that we are sensible of such mighty power in prayer. “And whatsoever we ask, we receive of Him, because we keep His commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in His sight” (1 John 3:22). Prayer is a precious, priceless privilege. A present and potent weapon. All our blessings flow through its medium, and all our achievements we owe to its instrumentality. Whatever, then, adds to the power of prayer, should be hailed by us with gratitude, and employed with vigor. Would we be more mighty and prevalent in prayer? Then let us in all things desire so to walk as to please our Heavenly Father. “Thou meetest him that rejoiceth and worketh righteousness, those that remember Thee in Thy ways...” (Isa. 64:5).
