Prayer

 

Indigenous-people-prayingPlease pray with us: Prayer can obtain everything: can open the windows of heaven and shut the gates of hell; can put a holy constraint upon God, and detain an angel till he leaves a blessing; can open the treasure of rain and soften the iron ribs of rocks till they melt into a flowing river; can arrest thesun in his course, and send the winds upon our errands.
