Ruth 3:1-4:22; Isaiah 43:1-44:5; 2 Corinthians 3:1-4:6

The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. James 5:16

When fire broke out in the hold of the ship, passengers and crew formed a line and passed buckets of water. A friend of D. L. Moody suggested they go to the other end of the ship and pray for the safety of all. “We’ll do nothing of the kind,” replied the man of God. “We’ll stand right here, pass the buckets and pray hard as we do.” Let us pass the soul-saving-Gospel to the lost, praying hard as we do. —Arnot P. McIntee

Toil on, faint not, keep watch and pray:
Be wise the erring soul to win:
Go forth into the world’s highway,
Compel the wanderer to come in. —Horatius Bonar
