March 6: Prayer Warriors – John Wesley

Have you heard of “The Powerhouse of Methodism”? It was a small little “closet.” John Wesley went to bed at 9:00 PM, and started his day in his “closet” at 4:00 AM, in Bible Study and prayer. Do you have a place that you spend a daily time with God?

God’s command to “pray without ceasing” is founded on the necessity we have of his grace to preserve the life of God in the soul, which can no more subsist one moment without it, than the body can without air.

John Wesley

But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

Matthew 6:6
