Again, I assure you: If two of you on earth agree about any matter that you pray for, it will be done for you by My Father in heaven.
— Matthew 18:19, HCSB
I feel so glad that we could hold our meeting in a place where there are so many quiet retreats in which to pray.
Get together in companies of two or three, and go off into some quiet place to seek the Lord. His promise is that where two or three are agreed together as touching anything, their prayer will be answered.
If students would read the Word of God more, and pray over it, the light of heaven would shine upon them... they will exert a cheerful, uplifting influence upon all with whom they come in contact. Then the angels of God can give them success in their work.
Will you not pledge yourselves to God to serve him, and him alone? I do not ask you to pledge your word to one another. Pledge yourselves to God. Let him be the one who will hear the promise that you will press steadily forward in the way to heaven.
Let us hold fast to God. Let us consecrate ourselves to the service of Christ. He will give us power to overcome. Of yourselves you can not create this power. Place yourselves as humble seekers at the feet of Jesus, and he will give you the strength you need.
Our God is close beside us. “Lo,” he declares, “I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.” Yoke up with Christ. Do not yoke up with human beings, and then think that because they are not perfect, you need not be. Link up with the One who is perfect, and who has power to sanctify you and give you a fitness to receive the life that measures with the life of God.
God would have us take hold of the rich promises of his Word. Come to his feet, and plead with him for power.
Angels of God will help every one who endeavors to conform his life to the life of Christ. Just as surely as the students grasp the hand of infinite power, that hand will lift them up.
