What screw driver is to a screw is what prayer is to the word.
No screw can penetrate any surface without its driver.
In the same way, the word can never penetrate the heart of men without prayer.
We must pray before we preach so as to contact power to prick the heart of men. Lk.5:16,17; 24:32; Act.2:1-4; 14:37,41
It takes prayer to contact power to melt hardened hearts.
It is in prayer that we process revelation into revolution.
In study an orator is born but it is as we pray that oracles are made out of orators. It is prayer that powers principle.
Without prayer principles are paralyzed.
