John Wesley on Prayer

“God does nothing but in answer to prayer; and even they who have been converted to God without praying for it themselves, (which is exceeding rare,) were not without the prayers of others. Every new victory which a soul gains is the effect of a new prayer.” 
Wesley, John A Plain Account of Christian Perfection, from The Works of the Rev. John Wesley Vol. XI (London: Thomas Cordeux, 1812), p. 241

Prophecy and Prayer

Quite often we receive general prophecies for our nations and churches or personal prophecies. However, we make a sad mistake in thinking that if it is a true prophecy then it will automatically happen. Prayer is vital in fulfilling prophecy (see Jeremiah 29:10-14; Daniel 9:1-3; 2 Samuel 7:17, 25-29).
