This was written by Robert E. Lee after the Civil War. It is still timely and true for today: "Knowing that intercessory prayer is our mightiest weapon and the supreme call for all Christians today, I pleadingly urge our people everywhere to pray. Believing that prayer is the greatest contribution that our people can make in this critical hour, I humbly urge that we take time to pray- to really pray. Let there be prayer at sunrise, at noontime, at sundown, at midnight-all through the day. Let us pray for our children, our youth, our aged, our pastors, our homes. Let us pray for our churches. Let us pray for ourselves, that we may not lose the word "compassion" out of our Christian vocabulary. Let us pray for our nation. Let us pray for those who have not known Jesus Christ and His redeeming love, for moral forces everywhere, for our leaders. Let prayer be our passion. Let prayer be our practice."

Amen. Oh, that the American church today could get a hold of this message of prayer once again!! It is good to be reminded again of the importance and need of prayer.
