 Collection of A W Tozer’s Prayers

“Father we pray: Bless thou this truth. Oh God, thy mercies are abundant. Are not thy mercies full and free, and have they not, oh God, found out me? We thank thee for thy mercies, thy many, abundant, full mercies. Now we pray that thou will help us to lean back upon thy mercy and trust, and not be afraid; heed sin and love righteousness, flee from iniquity and follow after godliness, but always know that in all that we do mercy is around us like the air; underneath us as the earth; above us as the stars, and we live in a merciful world and serve a merciful God; live and swim and move and have our being in the abundant mercies of the triune God. Graciously grant us, we pray thee, properly to understand this and to apply it to our hearts, and we give thee praise through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.”

~

“Father we pray thy blessing upon the truth. Pray thy blessing upon this service that follows. Let us, we pray thee, feed on heavenly riches: the blood, that was shed, but the blood that is still shed; the blood that is now on the altar; the sacrifice, the priest, the lamb and all that is now ours till He comes. And open before us all the riches of His will, and show us our inheritance which is ours in Christ Jesus. Graciously bless us as we wait upon thee, we ask it in Christ’s name. Amen.”

~

“Lord we pray, for the afternoon, that it may not be wasted, but that it might be used in some good positive way: to know thee better; to cultivate spiritual things; to do good unto all men; to witness your saving grace to a world that’s dying. And now may grace and mercy and peace from God the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost be with us.”

~

“Our Father, we pray,.... we would repent before thee this morning Lord, rather than just pray. We would repent before thee oh Lord, for our 0:03:04.3materialistic?? minds: thinking in terms of this world, judging, weighing, measuring, valuing as men do. Father, this is wrong: forgive us. And Father, our preoccupation with earthly things also, we would repent this morning. As a people we would repent for our absorption in the things that pass away. Oh Lord forgive us, cleanse us, that our garments may be white this morning, pure, shining. We may receive as unworthy, but believing people. Break the bread of life this morning. Oh bread of life, break it; wine of the soul, spill it: heat us till we want no more. In Jesus’ holy name. Amen."

 Re: Collection of A W Tozer’s Prayers


“Oh Son of God, most Holy God, that holy thing which shall be born of Thee shall be called the Son of God. Oh holy thing, born, crucified, risen, enthroned, we beseech Thee that Thou would rebuke all the unholiness in us that would grieve Thy Spirit from us. Rebuke, we beseech Thee, all of the flesh and of the mind that is even negative, and that thus hinders the operation of the Spirit. Oh we beseech Thee let the Shekinah be seen today. Let it hover over each habitation, showing that the Lord is nigh, we beseech Thee. May we go away from this place serious, and have sought to be holy as Thou art holy, and have tried by surrender and faith to purify our hearts unto obedience. Grant, we beseech Thee, to answer all this, through Christ our Lord. Amen.”

~

“Oh God we pray Thy blessing upon us. Oh, Lamb of God we love Thee so, we would with Thee life’s journey go, and we pray Thou wilt help us this morning, hurt and humbled by our own unworthiness in the knowledge of, and taunting memories of sins committed in the past, but by Thy grace at the moment we have no wish to sin. We wish only to love Thee and live as we should, so please help us now for Jesus’ sake. The brethren will now gather while we sing.”

~

“Father we pray Thy blessing upon this word. Now as we enter Communion service, we pray, that in utter humility, meekness and humbleness of spirit, we may be and insist upon being what Thou dost declare us to be, that we may deduce from Thy own characterizations of us, what kind of holy men and women we are to be, showing forth the praises of Him who brought us out of darkness into His marvellous light. Take away all bitterness; all resentfulness; all disquietude; all discontent, and bring us, we pray Thee, into mental and spiritual harmony as we think together of the shed blood and the broken body. In Jesus’ name. Amen.”

~

“Well God bless us. It’s time we wake up, and I pray with the prophet, or with the hymn writer, ‘Awake God turn ...Almighty God turn off their eyes from all these alluring vanities, and let the thunder of Thy word awake their souls to fear the Lord.’ May it be so. Amen.”

~

“We pray shut us out from the world’s clamour and the wagging tongues and the noisy booming voices, and the example that would lead us not toward Thee, but toward the world. Save us from it and shut us in with Thee, and may we think and talk and meditate on holy things today. This message now with Thy blessing may grace and mercy and peace be with us through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

~

“Now our Father we well know that spiritual things can’t be reduced to formulas, even though we struggle so hard to do it. An impulsive faith, sudden reckless daring of the soul, in its leap after God, could do more for us than all the carefully laid out sermons could ever do. But we’ve done all we can do: we’ve appealed to the intelligence, made some explanations, tried to say in our racy modern English, what has been said with great and stately dignity in our Bibles. My God now take this that has been spoken and apply it to our hearts. May we, one after the other, turn from Adam’s unbelieving world, with its self confidence, its self reliance, its arrogance, its pride, its mad pleasures, the love of wealth, the love of praises, love of publicity; its inordinate love of clothing and of fine things and of rich things. Turn us, we pray Thee, from it all, not only in our hearts, but in reality, and then turn us to Jesus Christ Thy Son. We need Him Lord. If we gave up the world and didn’t have Him, we’d be in a vacuum. Father quickly take us through that little vacuum, and take us to Jesus Christ who is the radiant source of everlasting life and peace and joy, world without end. God bless us now as we go on into the Lord’s Supper. We ask it in Christ’s name. Amen.”

~

“Heavenly Father, we pray that Thou wilt single us out as though there weren’t any others, in lonely singleness, and speak to us. Lord, it isn’t Thy will that we should fail in our Christian progress. Lead us Lord, Thou hast spoken this morning, of that we’re quite certain. Continue to speak. Save us, we pray Thee, from the result of our own foolishness. Save us from the traits of our own nature. Save us, we pray Thee, from our own laziness, and make this afternoon for some a time of crossing over. And now may grace and mercy and peace in the triune God – Father, Son and Holy Ghost, be with us forever.”

~

“Oh Lord we pray Thee help us this morning. We can’t ask that we might be worthy to receive of the Communion, but we do ask that we might, in a worthy manner, receive it. Prepare our hearts, oh God, to think seriously and reverently, and with joy over Thy blood and body and righteousness, which are to be to us a glorious dress and a heavenly garb in that day. Within our minds, when considering the world, may we think only about Thee. In Christ’s name. Amen.”

~

“Father we pray Thy blessing upon the Word given. We pray that Thou wilt help us, that our faith might mount up like an eagle, stretch its broad wings and soar so high that nothing can pull it down, and as the eagle can look upon the son, we pray that we may look upon Thy Holy Son at the right hand of the Majesty, and that we may be grateful to the point of cheers and tenderness, that He who was God and very God, of very God, gave Himself and hung on yonder tree. Bless us as we receive of the Lord’s Supper. In Christ’s name. Amen.”

~

“Now Father we pray Thee bless this truth. Long ago Thy servant wrote these words: we Thy servants in this time long after hear them. They’re as if they’d been written yesterday and delivered this morning. Oh God, we lift our eyes to Thee, to Thy Son, Jesus Christ the Lord, who is above angels, and who sitteth at Thy right hand, and we pray give to us a spiritual urgency. Give to us a longing which is more than human. Give to us, we pray Thee, the desire that’s like a fire burning in our bones, that the claims of Christ, Thy Holy Son, may be so strong within us that we cannot neglect them; and we shall press on like the dayspring and rise higher and higher to this shining light and unto the perfect day. We ask it in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.”

 Re:



“Father, we pray Thy blessing upon these words, and upon the little commentary that we’ve made on them, trying to apply to them to our practical living. We pray that Thou will give consent of heart and willingness to obey, and cheerful faith to do as we’re told by the Spirit in the Scriptures; and bless us during the day and for the afternoon and for the evening, and may this day be a big day, a great day, not a dramatic day necessarily, that the newspapers will talk about, but a day deep in the things of the Spirit. We give Thee praise. Amen.”

~

“Let us pray. Lord, oh Lord, we love Thy church, we love Thy Kingdom. Her walls before Thee standing there as the apple of Thine eye engraven in Thy hands. For her our tears shall flow, and for her our prayers shall rise, and for her we promise to labour and work, but oh Lord, Thy poor church is only a ragged beggar woman, when she could be a queen, when she could be a princess leaning upon the arm of her beloved. Oh Lord Jesus, we pray for Thy church. We pray for Thy people who believe Thy word, or claim to believe it, who cannot pray now, at the moment; for the liberal, for the toughest, for the false teacher we cannot, but we pray for those who believe the Bible. We pray for those who claim they’re evangelical, and yet they wear rags where they should wear silks. Oh God, we pray Thee revive Thy church in the midst of the years. Revive this church oh Lord. Revive the Alliance. Revive every denomination that stands for the truth. Oh Lord, save us from fear and save us from intimidation. We’ve grieved Thy Hold Spirit by neglecting Him. We’ve quenched Thy Holy Spirit. We’ve listened to the blandishments of men who ought to know better, and they have made us afraid to believe in the power of the Holy Ghost. We grieve for this, and we apologize to Thee for it. We pray Thee, oh God, of grace, out of infinite grace send to this church a sweet wave of power to be, a sweet wave of ability to be holy and good and faithful and tempered and joyful and right. Send, we pray Thee, such a wave. We thank Thee for the blessed Spirit, Father. Thou didst send Him to the Earth to be our advocate, our indweller, to show us the Lord Jesus, to lead us as a shepherd leads his sheep and to be in us a mentor and teacher showing the things of Christ to us. We have acted as if He didn’t exist, and we’re sorry. We apologize and we repent for our neglect of the Spirit and our mistreatment of the Spirit. Oh Father, wash us clean and make us white in the blood of the Lamb, and then pour more oil on our heads for the poor world bleeds and dies and we have naught to help them, they starve and we have naught to give them, forgive us Lord. Breathe, oh breathe Thy breath upon us and say, ‘Receive ye the Holy Ghost’. Save us, we pray Thee, our God, from logicians and men with pencils and rules and squares and levels, always guiding us away from the fountain. Lord we would put them behind us and under our feet, and rise on our dead selves for better things. Help us, we pray Lord, these evenings together. May the total result be that one after the other of us shall be filled with a new power and a new grace and a new ability to be endued, that we might show forth the excellency of Him who called us out of darkness into His marvellous light. We ask it in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.”

~

“Let us pray. Oh our Lord Jesus, we’ve entered into what many call holy week, and we’re going to be thinking this week about Thy suffering and Thy death: the next Lord’s day we’re going to celebrate Thy resurrection. Oh blessed Lord Jesus, we thank Thee that all this has passed, and while we may commemorate it now, it doesn’t repeat ..... it’s not repeated: Thou art not going to die Friday, nor rise Sunday, nor send the Holy Ghost 50 days later – all that’s history and done, and we’re the beneficiaries of it all if we only dared believe it. Help us to believe it oh Lord, and forgive us for doubting. We are the recipients of all that it cost Thee and all that Thou didst bring by death and suffering and tears and groans and sweat, and by resurrection and by ascension to the Father’s right hand we are the heirs of the ages. Upon us the ages have converged and we, oh Lord, are richer, richer than angels for Thou didst do this not for angels but for men. We are Thy church Lord. We are a people set aside here that are met in this corner, in this building, which Thou hast graciously provided for us. Here we are Lord, and we’re waiting Lord. We’re expectant Lord. We need help Lord. Oh Lord, we pray Thee, put Thy arms about us and squeeze us together so tight that there be no pockets between us, no non-conducting elements that ground nor hinder the power from flowing. Let it be this week, let it be all over Easter, let it be for the days ahead we beseech Thee oh Lord, and let one after another of us we pray, oh Lord, find the secret place and there wait with our open Bible until our vessels are clean and empty, and we are waiting and believing, and then we believe that one after the other Thou wilt give power, and we’re looking forward Lord Jesus to that moment when there shall be a sudden nearness of the Saviour, instantaneously bestowed, lovingly bestowed upon a thirsty people. Save us, we pray Thee, from the cheap pattern of the worldly churches, and bring us back to Calvary, back to Pentecost, back to all that they meant and mean, and is now perpetuated for us. Oh blessed Lord Jesus. Amen.”

~

“We pray Thee, oh God, for Thy work there in French Quebec, where the ... everything is stacked against the people, against the true people of God. Bless our young brother we pray. May Thine oil be upon his head in such measure that everybody there, even though they hate him for his Protestantism, may love him for the fragrance of his life, and slowly turn and see that the fragrance of a holy life comes from the same doctrines that they hate, and thus give up their opposition and turn to Thee, that mercy, we pray Thee, attend the ministry of this young man, and all of those who labour there. We ask this in Christ’s name, Amen.”

~

“Let us pray. Oh look on us Thy love, Thy undying affection, a love that a few hours later would die also. That love hasn’t lost of any of its content: no weaker no smaller, big as God is big and as eternal as God is eternal. Oh Lord Jesus, we’re Thy sheep, and the world is big, and the devil is going about like a roaring lion, and the temptations are strong, and the flesh is weak, and maybe some of us are cooling off inside our hearts. Please Lord, before it’s too late, help us to get enough of it quick before it’s too late. Please Lord, don’t let us harden and backsliders: people that have lost their conscience can no longer grieve because they no longer sorrow, but they don’t feel sorrow. Oh we plead, look at us again today in our hearts. We’re no better than Peter, but maybe Lord, some who like Peter have sleeped out of discipleship, or at least inwardly they have: look on us Lord and break our hearts. Look on us and make us weep. Give the grace of tears this morning Lord, oh Jesus a few tears. If we knew that we could have this morning $10,000 on offering plates for the Church and for missions we’d be glad, but if we knew instead we would have 10,000 tears of grief and repentance and penitence and faith and hope and joy, we’d lay the $10,000 away and take the tears that we might weep, because we can’t weep. Oh help us this morning in Jesus’ name.”

~

“So let us pray and let’s believe God together. Now we’re going to close, and when you go to the in-sing tonight, don’t sing junk. I know you don’t think you do, but sing only that which warms your heart and makes Jesus Christ glorious, and then slip away home and don’t waste your time telling jokes and making quips, and lose everything you got today in the House of God. Let us stand and sing.”

~

“Have dealings with God, won’t you friends, have dealings with God before you close your eyes in slumber this night? Father we want to thank Thee that in Thine infinite mercy Thou hast not let us go like cattle to the slaughter not knowing where we’re going because we’re fast asleep, imaging that we’re alright, when actually we’re being fattened for the slaughter. We thank Thee Lord that Thee brought light on this, now help us to walk in it. Bless us, every one. Take away all false hopes and all unscriptural expectations, and pull us back to the Word of the Lord. Oh Father, help as we go down the steps and onto the sidewalk tonight: mark the foreheads of them that sigh and cry. Great God, have mercy upon our America. Have mercy we pray upon our America, with dozens of gods, at least a dozen gods. Have mercy Father, and help us to turn from idols to serving Thee and to wait for Thy coming from heaven. Dismiss us now we ask in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, amen.”

~

“God and Father of our Lord Jesus, we thank Thee this hour: Thou hast not allowed us to wander into the serpent infested valley and left us there, but Thou hast allured us and wooed us, and even there hast placed the door: wherever we are there’s a way out and a way in from that spot. Thou hast so arranged it in Thy grace, how Thy sent Thy son Jesus to die, to rise, to live, to plead, and to be for us advocate above, a saviour by the throne of love, and while He’s there and we are here. We bless Thee. We will not despair. We will not give up. We will not surrender to the chains of the enemy. We will dare to believe that with every temptation Thou wilt make a way that would turn our tin into silver, and our silver into gold, and Thou wilt give us the garments of praise for the garments of heaviness. Bless Thou the word spoken this morning. We ask it of Jesus Christ our Lord.”

~

“Dear Lord Jesus, we’re unworthy to be members of Thy church, but we are not dominated by the devil into letting our unworthiness make us morbidly unbelieving. Even though we’re not worthy to be, we’re accepted in Thee, and Thou hast made us members of Thy body, and we accept it, and we leave the matter of our work with Thee, and if angels or archangels question our right to be there, we look to Thee as a sheep looks to his shepherd and say, ‘Answer for me Lord, answer for me. I admit I am not worthy, but answer for me dear Lord’, and Thou wilt answer for us for Thou didst come from high heaven to low earth, from the immortal and eternal liberty of the Godhead to the confines of the virgin’s womb, that we might be redeemed, and Thou didst die on the cross of shame and suffering and rise that we might be justified and forgiven, and you reunited again with the father from which we fell in the fall. God all this is true and we leave it with Thee. Now wilt Thou bless and help us to see how wonderful it is to be a member of however small a group that believes in Thee. We leave the great top-heavy Christendom to find its own way. We shall pray, oh God, for all the Church, all who call themselves Christians. We shall be tolerant and kind and charitable and loving and friendly to them all, but we’ll only go with those that love Thy name, that trust the precious work of Christ on the cross, and that are ready to leave all and follow Him. We pray, oh God, for every Christian in Toronto. We pray for all the ministries of the truth and apparently there are many who preach the truth. Bless them all father, and grant that over these weeks that lie before us we may see a constant rising tide that shall eventuate in a flow that shall be like the river that flows out from the Throne of God, and all this we ask in Christ’s name. Amen. Amen.”

~

“Alright, let us stand and we’ll pray. Now our Father in heaven we pray for these Thy servants and children. Lord, satan is such an evil enemy and the world is everywhere about us, and the flesh is so persistent. Now I would you know that some of us are having a tough time of it. Sometimes the flesh conquers and sometimes the world gets the better of us. We want it to be reversed. We want it to be the other way around. We want always to have Thee win. We want to see Thee victorious always, as Thou were victorious through David Thy servant. Oh God we pray for these. We pray that Thou would take them through, bring them to an experience in their lives where they can truly and positively know nothing is between them and Thee: no strength, no family, no reputation, no ambition, no money, no property, nothing is between them and Thee for Thy face beams down upon us as clear as the sun on a bright day with no cloud in between. Lead we pray Thee in this, and we pray for the days that are before us. We pray that Thou wilt bless us Lord, and let there be a deposit of glory left in this city as a result of these meetings. We beseech Thee Holy Ghost in power and might from the throne above, from the heart of Jesus the Lord: come and bless this city, these friends, in the day and in the evening, and do what Thou hast planned to do sovereign Lord, do what in Thy mind is for these people, for the churches of this city, for the people who will be here, whether there be many or few. Do something Lord, we pray Thee, work it out, do it oh Lord God we pray Thee, as clearly as raising a dead man or healing a sick man or, as in olden days, when Thou didst do these physical miracles, do Thou we pray Thee within the hearts and lives of people, miracles as sharp and clear as those miracles were, that when the meetings are over, there will be those who have a deposit of power placed within their heart they didn’t have when the meetings began.”

 Re:

"Father, Bless Thou this exhortation on our shoulders Father, and send us out a happy people. For surely we are to be a happy people, Since Thou art our Father, and Jesus our brother, and the Holy Ghost our indwelling Paraclete. Save us from anger, and help us to sing unto the Lord a new song, and rejoice continually. For, oh Lord, hath set our feet upon a rock, put a new song in our mouth, even praises, Amen."

~

"Dear Heavely Father, We pray this night, oh Heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ Thy Son, we bring our petition. Father, we apologize to Thee this night, for the way we've been living. We're sorry for carelessness, in that insidious need in Zion, who cares nothing for the troubles of Jacob. Oh God, oh God, we pray this evening that Thou wilt burn through clay. We dare to ask, and we do ask. Don't let anybody escape the arrows of the Almighty. Don't let anybody escape the net of the Divine Fisher. We beseech Thee that Thou would so rule upon us, that one after the other, board members, and Sunday School teachers, and people of every reputation for being holy and all that, all of us together will see how desperately we need a visitation from Thee, and how Word can bring it. Thou rot. Thinking in the rot, praying in the rot, expecting in the rot, living in the rot. Oh Lord, we thank Thee there is a way out. Precious blood of Jesus cleanses from all sin, and where the blood cleanses, the Holy Ghost anoints. So we pray this night, there might be some, even one that will say, "I am the man. I am the man." , and will do something about it.
And we believe that if we will repent of the rot, that Thou will repent of the rot that Thou art leading us in, and will bring us out to a wealthy place. We ask this in Christ's name. Amen."

~

"Son of God, Immortal Love, We that have not seen Thy face, by faith and faith alone embrace. We believe tonight. We reject the claims of men and we'll follow none of them; but we own Thy claim, oh Man who is God. We admit the validity of Thy claim. Teach us we pray Thee, to bring in our scattered lives and concentrate them upon Thee with all this and the other saints. Teach us we pray to listen to the sound of Thy musical voice until we're charmed, and enthralled, and enraptured by it. That we might not go our sleepy way, be mediocre, half awake Christians. Father, the coming of the Lord God's nigh. Grant we pray, that these friends may take this home and do something about it. We ask in Christ's name, Amen."

~

"Oh God, oh God, Thou knowest the world is spinning on. Time is running out. Children are becoming youth, and youth becoming middle age, and middle age are getting old and older. And Thou hast said redeem the time, for the days are evil: Lord, Thou dost want us to be revived again. Revive Thy people, oh Lord, individual people, and in it, numbers of individual people can band together. But oh, revive Thy people. Grant Lord, to help.
Now the other people, just for a minute more of prayer. who would say, 'Mr. Tozer, please pray for me, that i might have heart to God in my soul, alone. Apart from our relation to others, that I might have a new inflow, power,and purity, and grace, that I might be a revived soul. Pray for me. Would you raise that hand?'"

~

"Father, Bless thy Word. Help us to see how wondrous are Thy judgements and Thy ways past finding out. We thank you Lord that these be praying through out-number the others, perhaps a thousand to one. Bless Thou the word. For Jesus sake. Amen."

~

"Oh Father, We pray for all these who raised their hand, Oh God we pray: Break them loose from their friends. Break them loose from their little block of society. Break them loose we pray Thee, from the little things that interest them and take them aside. It may be into the desert. Take them into the silence of their own room. Take them somewhere and in awe-full glorious vision, may they come through to a place where they've taken Christ as their all in all forever, and surrender to the Spirit of God, to be in them, to guide them through, with them inward and outward and around and beneath and above: all that the water is to the fish, all that the air is to the bird on the wing, more than that, all that the soul is to the human body, all that the spirit is to the soul, may they do this Lord, for Jesus sake. Disturb them Lord. Don't let them forget this. Don't let them settle down oh God, to another week of grubbing, and may this be the week that all that we've heard over the last week and heard today may become a living reality in our hearts. We ask this in Christ's name."

~

"Jesus break the repenter, Jesus break the repenter, Jesus break the repenter and touch them quick. Even though that doesn't quite, that's not quite in mood with the message, i have a feeling that alot of people have been fettered by men in preventing them from entering into moral understanding with what I've talked about. Let's trust God to break the fetters. Sing for a minute and let us stand."

~

"Let's pray. Heavenly Father, We thank Thee for all Thy dear saints, all Thy children, every color, and every age: Jacob Tewold, May DeHumahn, Bea Latertime, Oley Ann, Sole Distrug Vomenn, Billy Bray, Henry Sousa, and John LaCrosse, Francis Harrigan. Oh God, we could name them. A whole telephone directory filled up full of them, if we had time, That they would shine like stars in the dark world. some of them are gone. Some of them are still among us; but they shine in a dark world and they show forth the glory of Him who called us out of darkness into His light. We thank Thee for every one of em'. Oh God, help us, it were as bad as it, help us we pray to come full Christianity, to be willing to take the stigma of cross carrying light. Now that Thou'ld bless this company of people. We thank Thee for them. We pray tonight as we gather, that there'll may be some who'll make specific decisions. Some young people will be here tonight, probably, and maybe some who'll wander in that aren't Christians. We pray for them. We pray Thou'll prepare speakers, and singers, and those in charge of musicians, and those in charge of everybody, that there'll be a unity within our spirits, so that the Holy Ghost can without hinderance lay conviction upon those who need it. And give faith to those who are as desperate need faith. Bless us now we pray Thee, Through Christ our Lord."

~

"Lord Jesus, Thou art nearer than our breath. Thou art nearer than the impulses of our nerves. Thou art nearer than our thoughts. Oh, Lord Jesus, Thou art here, walking amid the seven golden candlesticks, with eyes like fire, and a sword going out of Thy mouth, and Thy head lighted world, and Thy face is the sun shining in it's strength, and Thou art girt about the patch with a golden girdle. Thou art the High Priest of the church.
Oh, Lord Jesus, we pray for the lost sheep here tonight. We pray Lord Jesus for the half-saved Christian. We pray for the backsliders. We pray for those who have turned from the thing they knew was right. Their first memory, is a Sunday School class, in prayer at table. Oh, they'd turn from it, and only go to church occasionally and then only to listen and go home. My Lord Jesus, tonight we for them, who would listen for the voice of the animal, the dull voice of the brain, that ignored that emblem that cries for God in eternal life. Have mercy we pray upon them, and how the two voices are sounding: the voice of Esau and the voice of Jacob, the voice of earth and the voice of heaven, sounding. We pray that they may have the wisdom and courage to turn their backs on the siren voice of the world and turn to the Lord Jesus Christ while it's called today. Great God, this is Thy meeting. We don't know what to do with it. It's up to Thee Lord. Great God, tonight, don't let the devil have everybody. Please God, save some for Thyself. Rescue some for yourself."

~

"Our God, our hope in ages past, help in ages past, our hope for years to come. We lift our hearts to Thee. We thank Thee Thou didst ever createst. We grieve that we ever marred that creation by sin; but, having done that, we rejoice that Thou didst find a way through love to save us: the sacrifice of Thy Son. He who was from the beginning, yielded Himself on a tree that He might die. We can never thank Thee enough. We pray Thee for those who are lost in our midst this evening. Oh Holy Spirit, Thou would draw and pull. May the unsaved hear the voice of Jesus say, 'Come unto me and rest.' May the thirsty hear Him say, 'Come unto me and drink.' May the blind hear Him say, 'Come unto me and see.' May the dead hear Him say, 'Come unto me and live.' Oh Lord, kindly do this for Jesus sake. Amen."

~

"Father, oh God, Thou art near us. Thou art here. My Jesus, we're tempted to say, " Thou art in this place and i knew it not." But we did know it after a fashion. This is none other than the Amen, this is the house of God, Bethel. We will raise our altar here, at this presence. Now, we pray for men and women and particularly young people who are charmed. The serpent of the world has charmed them like a bird. They gaze with fascination on all the showy glamour of the world, and they would die to become famous. Women here would give their 20 years off their lives for five years to be a movie star. Great God, we're sick, sick, sick inside, that we have sought the gutter instead of your glory. We have learned to love and live in and admire and imitate and follow the filthiest lowest most profane element in society. And there's a light, and men don't see it; and a voice, and they don't hear it; and Your presence, and they don't feel it. Oh, we pray, get hold of men and women and young people and children tonight, and pull them out of this mud, their own intellectual mud. Get them out of it we pray. But apart from sin, Oh God, Thou art in the world out here. Pray Thee help us, morning and night, and all during the day and night, and wherever we may be, to keep in contact with Thee Lord as He is in the world. And the great grief of the world is, the world knows Him not. But oh, we Christians can say, 'Thank you, Father. We know Thee. We know Thee through Jesus Christ Thy Son. We call Thee Father. We have called Thee as the Father. We have stayed our hearts on Thee. Blessed be Thy name. How we trust Thee.' Through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen."

"We're going to pray for you tonight. Oh Lord, We pray for these five persons, who have raised their hands and asked us to remember them. Oh Lord Jesus, the world is so full of temptations and the magnetism of the world is all but impossible to resist. These people want to do it. They want to turn from everything that grieves the Lord and follow Him. They want to be Thine completely, fully. We pray for them. I said, "pray one for another." We lift our hearts in prayer now, and ask, oh Lord, that you will help these five persons, to put away their resistance, to throw down all opposition, and meekly surrender now their hearts to Thee, for Thee to come in, take over, set up Thy throne and reign from within, king of their lives, by Thy grace. Grant this,we pray Thee, Lord Jesus, For Thy names sake."

~

"Would you bow your heads in a moment of prayer with me please? Thy going forth has been from of old, even forever. Thou art moving from eternity that was, to eternity to be, passing by. And the magnetism of Thy presence is finding a few: a few that are one with Thee, and yearning and longing, a few. Oh Christ, even as Thou did walk down the streets of Jerusalem, and they came out of houses and leaned out windows. Others glowered and walked away. So it is today. My Lord, we beseech Thee, help those that are rejecting, we pray Thee, let them reject. Those that will receive, we beseech Thee, let them receive. We say Selah. Amen. So be it God."

~

"Thou invisible mysterious person, present in our midst. The physician is near: the sanctifying healing Jesus. The Lord and the Saviour is near.
We pray for those who up to this hour have been careless, shallow, modern, irresponsible believers. Through want tonight, change all that, and to settle it with Thee, that they will take Thee as their Saviour now. That they will make Thee Thine, theirs, that they will make themselves Thine. They will lay hold of Thee by all their aggressive acts of their personality, believe on Thy name, and receive Thy person, cease to be sinners, and move over into the new and heavenly birth that makes them children of God. Grant it for Thy names sake."
