The life of the individual believer, his personal salvation, and personal Christian graces have their being, bloom and fruitage in prayer.
Prayer-leadership preserves the spirituality of the Church, just as prayerless leaders make for unspiritual conditions.
The more praying there is in the world, the better the world will be, the mightier the forces against evil everywhere.
The glorified will not be pilgrims, transient visitors, or tenants at will, but settled, permanent, walled, established by title, through eternity by warrantee deed, signed, sealed, recorded, possession given. No renters, no lessees of Heaven, but all property and home owners.
The resurrection of Jesus Christ was necessary to establish the truth of his mission and put the stamp of all-conquering power on his gospel.
