THE POWER OF THE SPIRIT-FILLED LIFE
Jesse M. Hendley
Our Lord said, "When thou prayest, enter into thy
closet and shut thy door and pray to thy Father
which seeth in secret; and thy Father which seeth in
secret shall reward thee."
Why is it so few people pray? Why is it so few people
attain to a real prayer life? Why is it that people
can talk on the telephone an hour and cannot talk to
God fifteen minutes in prayer? Why is it people can

under the sun but cannot study the Bible for thirty
minutes? Why is it that people can talk about
politics, war, current events and everything else for
hours at a time but cannot speak to somebody else

Spirit-filled person will be a witness for the Lord
Jesus Christ. Jesus said in Acts 1:8, "Ye shall
receive power after that the Holy Ghost is come upon
you, and ye shall be witnesses unto Me. "Why is it
so few Christians witness for the Lord?

thing else in this world, I want to live the Spirit-

are really born-again.
