Did you know that in one hour of prayer you will often make more progress than in days of the company with others? (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)
Have you, like many other men, allowed business, and the events going on in our country and world to distract you or diminish your prayer with God?
Sleep, company, idle visiting, foolish talking, idle reading, unprofitable occupations, engross time that might have been redeemed for prayer?
Why do we have so many meetings with men, yet so few meetings with God?
Did you know that the lack of these solitary hours not only injures our own growth in grace but makes us unprofitable members of the church of Christ, and renders our lives useless?
