Prayer Facts:

“The spirit of the world is the great hindrance to the Spirit of prayer.  All our most earnest calls to men to pray more will be vain unless this evil is acknowledged and combated and overcome. The believer and the Church must be entirely freed from the spirit of the world….It is only through death to the world that we can be freed from its spirit….In Christ it was the crucifixion spirit and death that was the source of the intercession Spirit and power. With us it can be no other way either” Andrew Murray (ref#143, p118).

Reasons for Waiting for GOD:

Because You are God of gods and Lord of lords, the great, the mighty, the terrible God, Who is not partial and does not take bribes (Deut 10:17), I will wait for You.

Because You are acquainted with and understand the heart (Acts 15:8), I will wait for You.

Because You preserve the way of Your saints (Prov 2:8), I will wait for You.

Because You guard the feet of Your godly ones (1 Sam 2:9), I will wait for You.
