You Must Pray by Jesse Hendley

Jesse M. Hendley
Luke 18

I am speaking to you now from Luke 18 on the subject
"You Must Pray or Be Lost." Oh, may God burn it into
our prayerless, careless souls! You say, "Well, I am a
deacon in the church." Yes, I was the pastor of a
church for thirteen years. I know something about
deacons who pray and deacons who do not pray. "I am a
Sunday School teacher. I faithfully prepare the lesson
and stand up and teach it." But it isn't worth much

heaven can flood the lungs of your spiritual life
except through holy prayer. Friends, you must cry to
God for mercy! Peace, the mark of divine grace, you
cannot have without prayer. We have got to pray to get
relief in the midst of spiritual problems. There is no
other way. Prayer is the only way you can get the
outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon ...
