"Let's pray. Oh Lord, Lord, Thou hast brought life and immortality to light through the gospel. Thou hast set a candle in every Christian grave. Thou hast sanctified every floating Christian body in the vast sea. Thou hast sanctified every dried fleck of dust that was once a tabernacle of the Holy Ghost. Great God, Thou hast taken the darkness out of the future, and Thou hast set a thousand suns there. We thank Thee. Thou hast made the bitterest pain tolerable. Thou hast taught us to so number our days as those whose days are given as a school for the world to come. We pray for any who may be lost in this room tonight. We pray they may turn their hearts back to Thee, back to the scriptures, back to the cross, back to the blood, back to the Saviour. Oh God, for our young people. Oh God, Thou knowest this terrible day. Oh God, Thou knowest this terrible day. We're inventing vaccines to keep them from dying of polio... and we're keeping them alive to teach them to be fools, and to live like fools and die like fools. My God, how confused everything is. We're licking one disease after another. We've pushed life expectance up thru 34 years to 60 some years, and all those years that we've gained on earth, we'll waste it. My God, forgive us. We're stupid. We're as beasts before you oh Lord. My God, we pray nobody might go out of this building tonight that hasn't found Thee as his God, and Jesus Thy Son as his Saviour, that doesn't know that immortality has come to him in essence, in eternal life in fact, and that now he can spread his wings and soar out, and rise, and become enamoured of those things where Christ sitteth at the right hand of God. Oh, my Father, don't let anybody here tonight be lost we pray. Save our young people from the nonsense and foolishness and chatter and all the devil inspired traps and tricks that would ruin them. Save them from their own lust. Save them from their own high spirits and hot blood. Save them from their poor ignorance. Great God, save our young people. Save them all. Add to their numbers. Make them such magnets that they'll draw other young people in off the street that won't wait for em' to grow up from the kindergarten but they'll come in off the street to see what makes you young people happy faced. My Father do something for us. Spread the gospel message. Bless every man who at this hour in this city may be ending his sermon and inviting people to the front. Bless we pray every gospel preacher. May satan suffer a major defeat tonight and the kingdom of God a major victory, receive a major victory. Help us now as we wait upon Thee, In Christ's name, Amen."

"Oh God, Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, We aren't going to be around long. Hear us. These young people without any hope, without a grey hair, without any evidence of aid to call upon Thee, they won't be around long.
Turn like an ever roaring stream bed, all is summed away, Take life forgotten, a dream dies at the opening day: Within a tragic flesh and blood with all our cares and fears are carried downward like a flood and lost in following years. Oh God, we pray, give us spiritual vision, give us insight, give us prophetic vision. Please help us to be not be on the side of them that crucified Thee in our sympathies. Help us rather to get over on the side of them that understood Thine-ward life, that the kingdom of God is within you, ye share the temple of the Holy Ghost which ye have of God, and that Christ dwelleth in you, except ye be reprobate, that Christ in you the hope of glory, in Glory. We pray Thee, keep us right, and help us to be right and obedient in all the practical things of life. Help us to be sound and practical. Help us also Great God to pierce through all the outer trappings, and goals and days and days, where the Shekinah fire burns between the wings of the cherubim: 'Oh be, oh be, Thy loving Spirit.
Comfort every troubled breast. Let us all in Thee inherit. Let us find that second rest. Great God, take away our bent to sinning. Our plan though never be. In the faith at it's beginning. Set our hearts at liberty.' Now God, we pray Thou wilt talk to everybody's heart tonight. In this frank and blunt message, we pray that Thou wilt help everybody to understand what is meant, that no good person might be offended. If an angry bad man goes away mad, we haven't much care, but we don't want the good person to go away feeling bad, unless by conviction the Holy Spirit's trying to teach him the error of his ways. Oh for Christ sake we pray, that Thou would make thy people good people, and may it be said in this every one, if not now, then very soon to see every one of us, that he was a good man filled with the Holy Ghost, we thank, grant this we pray for Jesus' sake."

"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 watch and let's pray. Lord I thank Thee, we thank Thee,
for the faith once delivered to the saints. We thank Thee for the hope that is ours. Bind us to men who once walked in this, good men and true, faithful men and true. We thank Thee that all the activities and faith and belief and discipline and prayer and warfare all led us to Him in every fulfillment. Now we found Him. We found Him there with everything we ever did. This wondrous Man who'll never sleep, Who'll sit and talk to us in ever giving. How we thank Thee for this miracle, this wonderful shining miracle; and You came from man. Blessed Jesus receive our thanks. We thank Thee Lord, we thank Thee. We pray that Thou would help everybody here tonight to open his heart, their heart wide to Your favour and plant a well to spring up onto eternal life. Lord help us. Help the deadline tonight. If any one may be partly back turned, nothing there may be squandered, helping maybe doubting. You see this night. May there be a quickening of the spirit to the God of spirits through Jesus Christ e'en to worship in spirit and in truth. We ask it in Jesus Name. Amen."

"Let's pray. Oh Christ, Emanuel, God with us, the Word made flesh to dwell among us, the Lamb that was slain who is risen again, Who is with us now, oh Christ, we pray, help us. Out of the Old Testament story that Thou hast said was written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world is come, we beseech Thee oh Christ, may the Spirit who inspired this story, may He visit as a torch, as a candle search our spirits tonight. We pray for those who are, who have been out there a little too much in the world, listening rather with tongue twisting, to the siren song of Jezebel, that have listening a little to the soft cooing of the daylight. Oh Christ, make us strong to take our cross, to turn our backs upon Baal and all that he stands for, to follow the Lamb with us where we go. Help us tonight, and in this hour, this moment of deceit, this moment of making up our minds whether should we just go our way or whether we be like Christ in the world, give us the courage to say, 'Jesus, I my cross have taken, all to Thee to follow Thee.' We ask it in His Holy Name, Amen."
