    The Privilege And Power Of Prayer

    “Incline, thine ear, O Lord, and hear: open thine eyes, O Lord, and see: and hear all the words of Sennacherib, which hath sent to reproach the living God.”—Isaiah 37:17 Satan goeth about as a roaring lion, “seeking whom he may devour; and the Holy Ghost has said, “resist him, stedfast in the faith.” Though Satan devours thousands or millions of our fellow men, he has never yet been permitted to devour the saints of the everlasting God.

There were moments in his sufferings, when his spirit was buoyant, and his feelings lively; when his thoughts were carried on high, and he was more than a match for Satan, and equal to all his pains and afflictions.
