Christ is able to save to the uttermost. He addeth intercession now to the atonement which he hath already made once for all. What a blessed apparatus of reconciliation with God! He who pleadeth for us at God's right hand is omnipotent to save – and willing as He is able.

Time spent in prayer will yield more than that given to work. Prayer alone gives work its worth and its success. Prayer opens the way for God Himself to do His work in us and through us. Let our chief work, as God's messengers, be intercession; in it, we secure the presence and power of God to go with us.
