Praying to a sovereign God

From the pen of John Flavel:
Prayer begets and maintains holy courage and magnanimity in evil times. When all things about you tend to discouragement, it is your being with Jesus that makes you bold, Acts 4:13.

He that uses to be before a great God, will not be afraid to look such little things as men are in the face.

Thanks for this encouraging quote. I think it is a word in season. I am reminded that Lloyd Jones said that it was his opinion that discouragement was the most prevailing disease in the church of his day. When we see a lot of apathy today we also see discouragement. How greatly we need today the men and women who are mighty in prayer. Thanks again
