Signs of the Times

[Rev. Douglas H. G. Sargent, in St. Luke's Redcliffe Square Monthly Review, London, England]

All spiritual success is dependent on prayer. There are limitless resources in God, whom we acknowledge every Sunday to be All-mighty. We need to be constantly in touch with Him. Our fellowship with one another is dependent on prayer, and perhaps we have scarcely realized that neglect of prayer is a sin. "God forbid that I should sin against the Lord in ceasing to pray for you." Said Dr. Mott at the conference on the Mount of Olives: "He 'went, as he was wont, to the mount of Olives.' What for?—to preserve vital contacts, to recharge the battery. If he found it desirable and necessary, what presumption and folly for us to assume we can do without it."
