It’s About the Man and Woman God Uses …   

For God it is the man and woman who matters and again it is the inside and not the outside that matters. People who could fit into the mould of God are the need of the hour. While the world is looking for improved technology, the historical God is harping on the right person. White, black, brown or yellow, God is least bothered. Heart is the heart of all.

   Study universal holiness of life. Your whole usefulness depends on  this, for your sermons last but an hour or two; your life preaches all the week. If Satan can only make a covetous minister a lover of praise, of pleasure, of good eating, he has ruined your ministry. Give yourself to prayer, and get your texts, your     thoughts, your words from God. Luther spent his best three hours     in prayer. -- Robert Murray McCheyne 

.WE are constantly on a stretch, if not on a strain, to devise new methods, new plans, new organizations to advance the Church and secure enlargementand efficiency for the gospel. This trend of the day has a tendency to losesight of the man or sink the man in the plan or organization.

God's plan is to make much of the man, far more of him than of anything else. Men are God's method. The Church is looking for better methods; God is looking forbetter men. "There was a man sent from God whose name was John." The dispensation that heralded and prepared the way for Christ was bound up in that man John. "Unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given." The world's salvation comes out of that cradled Son. When Paul appeals to the personal character of the men who rooted the gospel in the world, he solves the mystery of their success. The glory and efficiency of the gospel is staked on the men who proclaim it.

When God declares that "the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him," he declares the necessity of men and his dependence on them as a channel through which to exert his power upon the world. This vital, urgent truth is one that this age of machinery is apt to forget. The forgetting of it is as baneful on the work of God as would be the striking of the sun from his sphere. Darkness, confusion, and death would ensue.

 What the Church needs to-day is not more machinery or better, not new organizations or more and novel methods, but men whom the Holy Ghost can use-- men of prayer, men mighty in prayer. The Holy Ghost does not flow through methods, but through men. He does not come on machinery, but on men. He doesnot anoint plans, but men -- men of prayer. An eminent historian has said that the accidents of personal character have more to do with the revolutions of nations than either philosophic historians or democratic politicians will allow.

This truth has its application in full to the gospel of Christ, the character and conduct of the followers of Christ -- Christianize the world, transfigure nations and individuals. Of the preachers of the gospel it is eminently true.   The character as well as the fortunes of the gospel is committed to the preacher.

He makes or mars the message from God to man. The preacher is the golden pipe through which the divine oil flows. The pipe must not only begolden, but open and flawless, that the oil may have a full, unhindered, unwasted flow. The man makes the preacher. God must make the man. The messenger is, if possible, more than the message. The preacher is more than the sermon. The preacher makes the sermon.

As the life-giving milk from the mother's bosomis but the mother's life, so all the preacher says is tinctured, impregnatedby what the preacher is. The treasure is in earthen vessels, and the taste of the vessel impregnates and may discolor. The man, the whole man, lies behind the sermon. Preaching is not the performance of an hour. It is the out flow of a life. It takes twenty years to make a sermon, because it takes twenty years to make the man. The true sermon is a thing of life. The sermon grows because the man grows. The sermon is forceful because the man is forceful. The sermon is holy because the man is holy. The sermon is full of the divine unction because the man is full of the divine unction. 

Paul termed it "My gospel;" not that he had degraded it by his personal eccentricities or diverted it by selfish appropriation, but the gospel wasput into the heart and lifeblood of the man Paul, as a personal trust to beexecuted by his Pauline traits, to be set aflame and empowered by the fiery energy of his fiery soul. Paul's sermons -- what were they? Where are they? Skeletons, scattered fragments, afloat on the sea of inspiration! But the man Paul, greater than his sermons, lives forever, in full form, feature and stature, with his molding hand on the Church.

The preaching is but a voice.The voice in silence dies, the text is forgotten, the sermon fades frommemory; the preacher lives. The sermon cannot rise in its life-giving forces above the man. Dead men give out dead sermons, and dead sermons kill. Everything depends on the spiritual character of the preacher. Under the Jewish dispensation the highpriest had inscribed in jeweled letters on a golden frontlet: "Holiness to the Lord." So every preacher in Christ's ministry must be molded into handmastered by this same holy motto.

It is a crying shame for the Christian ministry to fall lower in holiness of character and holiness of aim than the Jewish priesthood. Jonathan Edwards said: "I went on with my eager pursuit after more holiness and conformity to Christ. The heaven I desired was a heaven of holiness." The gospel of Christ does not move by popular waves. It has no self-propagating power. It moves as the men who have charge of itmove.

The preacher must impersonate the gospel. It's divine, most distinctive features must be embodied in him. The constraining power of love must be in the preacher as a projecting, eccentric, an all-commanding, self-obliviousforce. The energy of self-denial must be his being, his heart and blood and bones. He must go forth as a man among men, clothed with humility, abiding in meekness, wise as a serpent, harmless as a dove; the bonds of a servant with the spirit of a king, a king in high, royal, in dependent bearing, with the simplicity and sweetness of a child.

 The preacher must throw himself, with all the abandon of a perfect, self-emptying faith and a self-consuming zeal, into his work for the salvation of men. Hearty, heroic, compassionate, fearless martyrs must the men be who take hold of and shape a generation for God. If they be timid time servers, place seekers, if they be men pleasers or men fearers, if their faith has a weak hold on God or his Word, if their denial be broken by any phase of self or the world, they cannot take hold of the Church nor the world for God. 

The preacher's sharpest and strongest preaching should be to himself. His most difficult, delicate, laborious, and thorough work must be with himself.The training of the twelve was the great, difficult, and enduring work of Christ. Preachers are not sermon makers, but men makers and saint makers, and he only is well-trained for this business who has made himself a man anda saint. It is not great talents nor great learning nor great preachers that God needs, but men great in holiness, great in faith, great in love, great in fidelity, great for God -- men always preaching by holy sermons in the pulpit, by holy lives out of it.

These can mold a generation for God. After this order, the early Christians were formed. Men they were of solid mold, preachers after the heavenly type -- heroic, stalwart, soldierly, saintly. Preaching with them meant self-denying, self-crucifying, serious, toilsome, martyr business. They applied themselves to it in a way that told on their generation, and formed in its womb a generation yet unborn for God. The preaching man is to be the praying man. Prayer is the preacher's mightiest weapon.  An almighty force in itself, it gives life and force to all. The real sermon is made in the closet.

The man -- God's man -- is made in the closet. His life and his profoundest convictions were born in his secret communion with God. The burdened and tearful agony of his spirit, his weightiest and sweetest messages were got when alone with God. Prayer makes the man; prayer makes the preacher; prayer makes the pastor.      

 The pulpit of this day is weak in praying. The pride of learning is against the dependent humility of prayer. Prayer is with the pulpit too often only official -- a performance for the routine of service. Prayer is not to the modern pulpit the mighty force it was in Paul's life or Paul's ministry.Every preacher who does not make prayer a mighty factor in his own life andministry is weak as a factor in God's work and is powerless to project God'scause in this world.

 The importance of Prayer life    Prayer means communication with God. Prayer will lead us into dependence upon God. A person completely declared before God “I am nothing” and God is supreme. And declare without God I am nothing. Prayer involves many aspects. Prayer produces faith. If a person got faith without prayer he will be like a skeleton less body. Prayer life will inform response of Cross of Calvary and blood of Jesus to sinner. Prayer will lead us to confession. Prayer will lead us to convection. Prayer will lead us to conformation. Prayer leads us to declaration. Prayer will lead us to take decision. Prayer will lead us to stand firm in Jesus. Prayer will lead us to victories life.    Every man and woman discovers that is the great dissatisfaction in their lives. Because the Holy Spirit direction is different and the self satisfaction will direct another direction. The self satisfactions will not fulfil the God’s plans in the man’s life. Only the God’s presence will fulfil the God’s purpose in child of God’s life.Through prayer life God will reveal new methods and new plans in the life of Man of God or Child of God. If the child of God doesn’t have prayer life, very soon he or she will sink in their own plans and methods and finally they cannot see the fruit of his purpose in the sight of God.  How a person will create God’s presence in his life? Only the prayer life will create the God’s presence and the God’s presence will give anointing and through knowing God’s word touch man’s condition and to sense and receive wonderful divine revelations. Many God’s servants are unfit for the Lord’s work because they don’t have prayer life. A prayer less God’s servant unqualified for any God’s work. Only a mighty prayerful God’s servants become useful vessels to the Lord. Enoch create God’s presence through walking with (Prayer life) God and finally the presence of God took him to the God’s presence (Ge. 5:24). Noah through his prayer life he became a righteous man and through his righteousness he found the favour from God and through favour of God he became a big Ship maker and finally he did everything just as God commanded him (Ge. 6:22). Abraham created God’s presence in hot summer through sitting in the opening of his tent (Ge.18:1) and finally he got the promise what he need (Ge. 18:10).Isaac created God’s presence in the evening through the meditation of God and the same time he received such a humble women as his life partner (Ge. 24:64 – 67).Jacob created God’s presence through cross the jabbok and he sent all his possessions across the stream and left alone and wrestled with God till daybreak. Finally he saw God and received new name (Ge. 32: 22 – 28). Moses created God’s presence through his prayer life and God would speak to Moses face to face as man speaks to his friend (Ex.33:11).King David created God’s presence through his confession of his sins and finally he received all what he lost.King Solomon created God’s presence through his prayer life and he received mighty wisdom of God (1King 3:4 – 13).    What is your condition in your prayer life? The Holy Spirit helps us our daily problems and in our prayers. For we don’t know what we should pray for, nor how to pray as we should; but the Holy Spirit prays for us with such feeling that it cannot be expressed in words (Rom. 8:26).  In the man’s life inner man and outer man is there.Through prayer life the inner man will receive strength and get right guidance to live happy life.  Through prayer less life the outer man will strengthen and get more dissatisfaction or frustration. Prayer life is the right food for inner man’s strength. Romans 8:26 says the Holy Spirit helps us our daily problems in our praying. All the time the inner man must be filled with God’s presence. The problem is many servants of God never think about prayer life and they give more preference for the outer man (self satisfaction). The outer man likes self satisfaction, self desires, self pity, self exaltation, self glory ect. Many called out servants of God build their ministry on their own desires because of that they cannot understand the Holy Spirit’s help in prayer.A prayer life will locked up with the Holy Spirit’s help. A prayer life will release from every bondage and will give boldness to stand for the God’s purpose in your life.A prayer less man can preach with his mind and knowledge but the Holy Spirit cannot involve in his preaching and finally he became a useless preacher. God cannot use the prayer less man in His mighty revival.Prayer life will destroys all our own imaginations, self-love, self knowledge and our own methods. Prayer life will able to function all God’s plans in our lives. Prayer less life will take us into darkness because prayer is the only way to see the God’s hand.Prayer will lead us everyday confession before God and clean the heart and prepare us to see God (Mt.5:8). God can never be wrong in what He does and only your prayer life will take you to God’s right guidance.Prayer less life man loves himself too much that is the reason in him all misunderstandings, complaints, dissatisfactions, loneliness, hatedness, bitterness, anger with sin and finally became a sluggard and through       sluggardness poverty will come. For as many as led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God (Rom.8:14).Only prayer life can lead us to lead by the Spirit of God. Spirit gives life. Our wisdom or the theological knowledge, goodness of life and feelings cannot give life. A man can have life through the Spirit and only the prayer life will give us to receive the Spirit life.  Prayer life will renew the mind and transforming life like Jesus and give perfect will of God. Without prayer life you cannot build up your life. A prayer full man will get the full of anointing of the Holy Spirit and when he laid his hands on others they will see the prayer life in him.Devil cannot stand before the prayer life man because prayer is the only weapon to resist the devil.The problem of many men of God is that without prayer life they will resist the devil that is the reason the devil over powered on them and finally they became naked (Act 19:16) Few practical prayer considerations      First in the matter of preaching, we often preach logically and with all our theological knowledge and the result of this we are robbing the God’s glory and finally and that preaching cannot work upon the people because the Holy Spirit cannot work with us, the only reason is that our prayer less life.The mind and emotions and theological knowledge are working but the Spirit is not, Because of prayer less life. Some times when we see sinners and want to cry but no tears come out from our eyes, because of our prayer less life. This is very sad.Every true servant of God will allow true prayer life and the prayer life will break out the all things in his life. May the Lord bring us in to prayer life. A prayer full person may not use many words but one word can give changes into many more lives. Your prayer life will give liberty in your spiritual life and gives mysteries and revelations from the word of God and protect your testimony among the people. Abraham used a wonderful method in his prayer for city of Sodom. (Ge. 18: 21 – 33).Abraham did not ask anything about Sodom and Gomorrah but God revealed His purpose towards Sodom and Gomorrah (Ge. 18: 17). Before He revealed His purpose God exalted and encouraged Abraham’s calling, discipline and promises of the Lord (Ge. 18: 17 – 19).   When God revealed His purpose for Sodom and Gomorrah immediately Abraham takes that purpose to speak to God for Sodom and Gomorrah because Lot was there. In the word of God, God’s purpose is there. Abraham approached God closely through the purpose of God. For every Nation there is a great purpose of God to fulfil the God’s purpose that is the reason He needs faithful servants to approach Him.  The purpose of God is the key to plead for the wicked City or Nation. After long discussion between God and Abraham, God sent His men to Sodom to save Lot and his family.Finally Abraham saved his cousin and God considered Abraham’s prayer because Abraham entered into God’s purpose with his prayer life.Are you wanted to be an Abraham for your Nation? Can you approach God to pleading for God’s purpose in your Nation?  In Numbers 16: 42 upon Tabernacle the cloud appeared and the awesome Glory of the Lord was seen because of the Israelites disobedience. The awesome Glory of the Lord is stand for the purpose of the Lord and immediately Moses and Aaron take that opportunity and stand between living and dead then the plague was stopped. God needs such a dynamic and committed prayerful people.  Jeremiah took the purpose the Lord and he started weeping and poured out his heart on the ground for his people (Lam. 2: 11). Daniel took the purpose of the Lord and he started confession his sin and sins of his people desperately pleading with the Lord for Jerusalem and for the Holy Mountain (Dan. 9th Chapter). Jesus before called the dead man Lazarus He wept, that means He declared the purpose of the Lord, after He prayed and released the dead man from the bondages and wrapped with a cloth (John 11: 35, 41, 44). When Peter and John went to the temple for prayer, they saw a lame man from his birth and that man eagerly expecting some gift from them but Peter said we don’t have money for you but I will give you something else the name of Jesus, that is the purpose of the Lord and with the purpose the Lord Peter took the lame man’s hand and pulled him on his feet then the purpose of the Lord entered into lame man’s feet and ankle-bones were healed and strengthened and he began to walking, leaping and praising God and enter into the temple with Peter and John (Act 3: 1 – 7).  The exercise of the Prayer life. After some time of our salvation very difficult to continuing in our prayer life because we are following the biblical teaching of praying but not exercisesing the prayer life. Every time when the morning and evening comes we kneel down and pray. Following the biblical teachings is different and exercises the prayer life is different.Following the biblical teachings of the prayer depend on memory but exercise the prayer life is not the memory but depend upon your commitment and decision in the presence of God.The nature of religious prayer is different from exercises the prayer life. In our prayers we will give much preference for self glory and self blessings than the Blesser that is the reason in our prayers Give, Give, Give and Give.We must be very natural with God in our pleading in our prayer like Mary in Bethany. Mary’s natural pleading lead Jews people to go to natural weeping and both natural weeping touch the heart of Jesus and God began to weep. Only our natural burden in prayer will touch God’s heart.    Prayer life will give strength to resist the outer man and give obedience to Holy Spirit’s discipline to inner man. Prayer will help to drop what they are doing and turn their entire work and back to God. The prayer life will give the Holy Spirit’s impact upon our daily life and each every movement. Prayer will give continues abiding in God and His presence.Only Prayer life will give total satisfaction to God’s heart because 1 John 2:27 says “the Anointing abideth in you”. Anointing is the God’s free gift to Men of God to manifest the Godly things on this earth. Only prayer life will give satisfaction to God’s heart and through the satisfaction of God’s heart the anointing will come and through anointing of God, power manifestations will come up and down travelling anointing is not giving manifestations  but only prayer life will give God’s manifestations.When Jesus Baptised by John He prayed like a common man (Luke 3:21, 22). He did not confess sins as others did, but through His prayer would keep up communion with His Father. Through His prayer He received His Father’s favour and the descent of the Spirit. The purpose of His coming with vision must be obtained by prayer. That is the reason when He prayed the Heaven was opened and the voice of the Lord came from heaven and the Holy Spirit descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him. After this experience He came from Jordan with power of the Holy Spirit and enters in to the wilderness to attack the temptations and finally He won the battle through His prayer life. For every born again child of God needs anointing because the anointing is the only weapon to be able to stand safe against all strategies and tricks of Satan (Eph. 6:11). The anointing is the operation of the Holy Spirit within the born again child of God and the Holy Spirit has to be worked in the members of the body to manifest the power of the Lord. Through exercising of the prayer life only manifest all these things. The more we spent in prayer, the more we enjoy the anointing of the Spirit. To know the vision of the God through prayer life.  The vision of the Lord is created by the Lord’s thoughts and the ways and the vision The man cannot measure the Lord’s vision because it is higher than man’s imaginations and thoughts (Is. 55:8).The foundation of the vision of God is the Word of God, which is the reason we can see the fruit of the spirit in vision. Through that vision only God’s manifestation will come upon the ministry.We can found His power and work in the vision. God does not do anything without His children, he works with His children. After His resurrection He works always been carried out through His disciples and His obedient children. If we follow His thoughts we can see the fulfilment of His plans in our lives because the Son did nothing from Himself but only He did what He saw the Father doing (John 5: 19).Now a days God has chosen you to be His vessel. Prayer life will give fellowship with the Lord and the fellowship will give the close relation with the Lord and the relationship will give love and the love will give the dedication and the dedication will give life for one another. A prayerful person became a vessel of God and through him God will manifest His power and accomplishes His work. If a believer exercising his prayer life God’s power and work will be expressed. If the child of God failed to exercise his prayer life, God will be limited. Abraham’s prayer life brings down the Lord and declared the promise of the Lord for Abraham and manifest God’s work in Sara’s weekend womb and finally we can see the fruit (Isaac) through the God’s unlimited from Abraham’s prayer life (Ge.18 chapter). If a person wants to know the plane of the Lord in his life he must obey to the Holy Spirit. The prayer life will help us to reach the discipline of the Holy Spirit and the discipline will lead us to a principled spiritual life. Our mind always disobedient and uncooperative to God but our prayer life will burst and destroy all our disobedient and uncooperativeness.   Prayer life operates the things.        Before explain this chapter I want to tell you a small story.One day the whole family travelling other side of the river by boat, when Father was driving the boat his five years old son came and asked Father, Father I will drive the boat and he took the steering of the boat and started driving but boat is not going smoothly then he asked his Father, Father why our boat is not going smoothly and why I am not driving perfect way, then father said to him, my son your strength is limited and you need physical growth in your body than only you can drive the boat like your father.This is the meaning of without Prayer life we cannot do anything for God.If you want to fulfil your vision you need prayer life.Your Prayer life will lead you into the discipline of the Holy Spirit.Your prayer life will open the way to God in your business or ministry.Many believers and Men of God put their mind in other things not in Prayer.One day Jesus went upon a mountain side and called to Him those He wanted, and they came to Him and He selected twelve of them to be His regular companions and go out to preach and cast out demons (Mark 3:13,14).There is a law in God’s calling, those who are called out by Jesus they must be with Him first then they may go reach and cast out demons.But these days very sad thing is those who are called by God, completely forget the law of their calling, they must be with Him. The exercising of the Prayer life will help to fulfil the law of the calling of the Lord. Many men of God got the calling in their life but we cannot see the law of the calling of the Lord, which is the reason we are not seeing fruit of the calling in their lives.God believed and called them for the Kingdom of the God’s work on this earth. If a person wants to fulfil the God’s expectations in his life, he needs prayer life and prayer life only gives strength to fulfil God’s expectations in his life.Our mental strength is very limited that is the reason we cannot reach the God’s limitation but our prayer life will help us to reach His limitation. Many believers or Men of God having many opinions and their own principles and they will apply their principles and opinions in the vision of God what they had from God. They are depending upon their principles and Opinions for fulfilling the vision of God. That is the reason we are not seeing the right fruit in right season because our principles and opinions and righteousness deeds are filthy rags (Is.64: 6). They are many principles and opinions in the calling of God, if you want to reach those things, only way to be with Him that means exercising the Prayer life.The prayer life will break all the hindrances in the Ministry and in the family.The presence of God will give the preference of God and the preference of God will give a perfect work and the perfect work will give the pleasant of God and the finally pleasant of God will give peace of God. What a wonderful things are in prayer life. If you want see all these things, this is the right time to kneel down and start your prayer life and your prayer life will take you to the destiny of your vision.  Many preachers are preaching with anointing but we are not seeing practical life what they are preaching. Some people are having burden for soul winning but we are not seeing many souls released from the fire of the hell. Why? Because they doesn’t have Prayer life. Only prayer life will release the practical preaching life and release the burden for souls. Through the Grace of God we may receive lot of experiences and blessings and prosperity but only through the prayer life we will manifest the power of God among the Nations.Prayer life will work like a vacuum cleaner in all our heart and mind and body.These days we are seeing much domination. In some families’ wife domination, children domination, mother in law’s domination and in some churches elders’ domination but in your life if the Prayer life dominates you, you will be the dominating person every where. Prayer Life’s first qualification in the work is a purity of the Spirit and through the purity of the Spirit the power manifestation will come.Prayer life will give ability of the preaching. Methods will give good preaching but prayer life will give life preaching.The Holy Spirit does not flow through methods of preacher but flow through prayer life of preacher.Prayer less man will give dead sermons but prayer life man will produce life sermons.  The Prayer life will lead us to the Cross We are not qualified people for God’s work simply born in Christian family or knowing Moses law or regular church attendance or good principles but confessing sins will lead us to Salvation and filling with Holy Spirit and after filling the Holy Spirit the Prayer life will help us to reach the Cross.The Cross will help us to deny our self and lead us after Jesus. That is the reason Jesus said “If any man come after me let him deny himself, and take up his cross and fallow me (Mt. 16:24).The Cross will give the Salvation through the power of God (1 Cor. 1:18)The Cross will give Joy and Peace in sufferings and persecutions (Gal.6:12).The Cross will give reconciliation with God and build the bridge between you and Father (Eph.2:16)The Cross will lead us to humbleness and obedience unto death (Php. 2:8).The Cross is not a doctrine or a statue or a Christian symbol but is the foundation or a Skelton for the vision of Jesus Christ. Without Skelton body cannot stand, the same way without Cross no Jesus. Before Jesus died on the Cross He exercised His prayer life all the time and in every situation. Without prayer life we cannot reach the Cross. Without Cross no resurrection and without resurrection no entrance into Heaven.Only Cross will give Crucified life and the Crucified life will produce Crucified lives.Animals will produce animals, Insects will produce insects, and Human will produce human, the same way the Crucified man of God will produce crucified church.But through only prayer life Crucified life will come.  The future revelations through Prayer life.  God separated the Light from the Darkness (Ge. 1:3) Abraham’s Prayer life separated him from his Father’s house and led him to the God’s guidance (Ge. 12:1)Isaac received right partner (wife) in his life through his prayer life (Ge. 24: 63 – 67).Jacob became an Israel through his Prayer life and his victory of faith could not have been gained without that all night wrestling. (Ge. 32: 24 – 28).Joseph’s prayer life in charged him all the land of Egypt (Ge. 41:41)Moses Prayer life helps to be a good shepherd for God's people. (Ex. 32: 10 - 14)Joshua's Prayer life stopped Sun and Moon until God's people get the victory. (Jos. 10: 12 - 14)Gideon's prayer life conquered on all the vast armies of Midian. (Jud. 7: 15 - 25)Hannah's prayer life presented a wonderful man of God through her barrens life. (1Sam. 1: 11 - 20)Samuel's Prayer life revealed a revelation for God appointed King for God's people.

But his prayer life, to whom he rebuked, reproved and exhorted, he started weeping and his heart poured out on the ground for them (Lamentations 2:11). Prophet Ezekiel’s prayer life made him as a watchman for God’s people (Ezekiel 3:17) Prophet Daniel’s prayer life led him to confessed his sins and the sins of his people and presenting his supplications and Prayers before the Lord (De. 9: 20). Prophet Joel’ prayer life revealed the out pouring of the Holy Spirit upon all people in the New Testament days (Act. 2: 16). Prophet Amos’s prayer life reveals the prophecy to God’s people while he was shepherding his sheep (Amos 7:15). Prophet Jonah’s prayer life led him into obedience to the Lord and gave courage to shouted to the crowds with Lord’s command and finally all Ninevehites decided to go without food and wear sackcloth’s to show their sorrow (Jonah 3:5).   Some Prayer warriors Much time spent with God is the secret of all successful praying.A man who spent so much time with God as to make it a notable feature of their lives. Charles Simeon devoted the hours from four till eight in the morning to God.Man of God Wesley spent two hours daily in prayer, he began at four in the morning.John Fletcher stained the walls of his room by the breath of his prayer. Sometimes he would pray all night; always frequently, and with great earnestness, his whole life was a life of Prayer.Archbishop Leighton was so much alone with God and prayer and praise were his business and his pleasure.Bishop Ken was with God before the clock struck three every morning.Samuel Rutherford, the fragrance of whose piety is still rich, rose at three in the morning to meet God in prayer.Joseph Alleine arose at four O’clock for his business of praying till eight.One of the Scotch preachers says; I ought to spend the best hours in communion with God and it is my noblest and most fruitful employment, and is not to be thrust into a corner and he said after tea is my best hour and that should be solemnly dedicated to God.A great man of God Robert McCheyne says; when I awake in the night, I ought to rise and pray. A little time after breakfast might be given to intercession.
