“The one concern of the Devil is to keep the saints from praying. He fears nothing from prayer-less studies, prayer-less work, prayer-less religion. He laughs at our toil, mocks at our wisdom, but trembles when we pray.” – Samuel Chadwick
I have to stop and think; how many times do I try to do things in my power? What makes me think I’ll be effective without involving God through prayer?
The Devil may laugh at me, but he’ll tremble as soon as I invite God into the picture through prayer.
And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints. – Ephesians 6:18
