Prayer Has Obtained the Impossible – JC Ryle

Prayer has obtained things that seemed impossible and out of reach. It has won victories over fire, air, earth, and water. Prayer opened the Red Sea. Prayer brought water from the rock and bread from Heaven. Prayer made the sun stand still. Prayer brought fire from the sky on Elijah’s sacrifice. Prayer overthrew the army of Sennacherib. Prayer has healed the sick. Prayer has raised the dead. Prayer has procured the conversion of countless souls.

Love is a Work of the Spirit – John Preston

The love of God is peculiarly the work of the Holy Ghost … Therefore the way to get it is earnestly to pray. … We are no more able to love the Lord than cold water is able heat itself … so the Holy Ghost must breed that fire of love in us, it must be kindled from heaven, or else we shall never have it.
