Logos for November 9, 2019--Week Of Prayer – Lessons On Prayer The temptations to which we are daily exposed make prayer a necessity. Dangers beset every path. Those who are seeking to rescue others from vice and ruin are especially exposed to temptation. In constant contact with evil, they need a strong hold upon God lest they themselves be corrupted. Short and decisive are the steps that lead men down from high and holy ground to a low level. In a moment, decisions may be made that fix one’s condition forever. One failure to overcome leaves the soul unguarded. One evil habit, if not firmly resisted, will strengthen into chains of steel, binding the whole man.
Logos for November 2, 2019-- A Call To Live A Life Committed To Prayer In 1989 the winds of freedom were sweeping across Europe and many of the totalitarian regimes were crumbling like sandcastles when hit by waves of the sea. One of the most totalitarian governments in eastern Europe was the regime in eastern Germany. This regime was particularly harsh in dealing with dissenters. It was in 1985 that a small group of Christians formed a church in Germany and thus started a prayer movement. Even though initially the movement was small they met consistently, faithfully, every Monday evening.
