When Satan Comes – Smith Wigglesworth

The Enemy of Secret Prayer – Thomas Brooks

The Enemy of Secret Prayer – Thomas Brooks

Satan is a very great enemy to secret prayer. Secret prayer is a scourge, a hell to Satan. Every secret prayer adds to the devil’s torment, and every secret sigh adds to his torment, and every secret groan adds to his torment, and every secret tear adds to his torment.

– Thomas Brooks –
from The Secret Key To Heaven, 1665
