"This is what the Lord Almighty says ". . . seek the peace and prosperity of the city . . Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper." (Jeremiah 29:7)

And Oswald Chambers wrote in My Utmost for His Highest:

"Prayer does not prepare us for the greater work. Prayer is the greater work."
