Billy Graham: Because Of Prayer
The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. James 5:16
John Knox prayed, and God’s responses to his prayers caused Queen Mary to say that she feared the prayers of John Knox more than she feared all the armies of Scotland.
John Wesley prayed, and revival came to England, sparing that nation the horrors of the French Revolution.
Jonathan Edwards prayed, and revival spread throughout the American colonies.
History has been changed time after time because of prayer. I tell you, history could be changed again if people went to their knees in believing prayer. Even when times are bleak and the world scorns God, He still works through the prayers of His people. Pray today for revival in your nation, and around the world.
