John Wesley’s Sermon on "The Means of Grace"
Pray without ceasing, pray (your
Captain gives the word)
his summons cheerfully obey and call upon the Lord;
God your every want in instant prayer display,
pray, always, pray and never
faint, pray without ceasing pray.
(Charles Wesley, "Soldiers of Christ, Arise," verse 3).
The prayer of faith will save
the sick, and the Lord will raise them up; and anyone who has committed sins
will be forgiven…. The prayer of the righteous is powerful and effective (James 5:15-16, NRSV).
