See what sad things prayerlessness has done! The church that is, is not the church that was. And the difference is one: PRAYER. They were uneducated men, and far from being experts in the Torah. They were not privileged with the many seminaries that have pampered this generation. Beautiful cathedrals were only existent in their dreams of heaven. They did not have the sophisticated methods and technology with which we do “ministry” today. The Early Church only knew how to do one thing well, and that was PRAYER.
If there ever was a time when the Church in these last days ought to return to the rock from whence it was hewn—even to the rock of prayer—it is now! Every pastor and teacher, every apostle and prophet, every bishop and overseer, ought to call a solemn assembly and stand between the porch and the altar, and sound out a trumpet call to his congregation, a call to return to the old—yet ever renewing—art of true prayer and intercession.
In “BACK TO PRAYER”, the author, Cyril Opoku, draws timeless truths from biblical accounts of prayer that will stir up your heart and revive in you the art of true prayer and intercession.
