The Value of Prayer for Ministers
1 Thessalonians 5:25
Brothers, pray for us.

John Livingstone, of Scotland, once spent a whole night with a company of his brethren in prayer for God's blessing, all of them together beseiging the throne; and next day, under his sermon, eight hundred souls were converted. All the world has known how the audience of President Edwards was moved under his terrible sermon on "Sinners in the hands of an angry God." But the secret of that sermon is known to but few. Some Christians in the vicinity had become alarmed, lest while God was blessing other places He should in anger pass them by; and so they met on the previous evening and spent the whole night in agonizing prayer.

(H. C. Fish, D. D.)
