I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life. – Jesus (John 8:12)
Time spent in prayer will yield more than that given to work. Prayer alone gives work its worth and its success. Prayer opens the way for God himself to do his work in us and through us. Let our chief work as God’s messengers be intercession; in it we secure the presence and power of God to go with us. – Andrew Murray
