A Marvelous Invention

A marvelous invention is at work, by which, with great rapidity, messages can be conveyed from city to city, and from country to country. Even beneath the waves of the wide ocean, the cable is laid down by which one continent is linked to another, and by which words, in a few minutes, can be spoken to a friend on a distant shore.

Just so, true prayer links together earth and Heaven, and is more speedy than any telegraph (or phone or computer!). One moment it arises from a believer's heart the very same moment it reaches the ears of the Lord Almighty!

[George Everard]


Isaiah 65:24 ... And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.

Jeremiah 33:3 ... Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

John 9:31 ... Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.❤
