When you walk by a house, pray for the family within that house. Whenever you see a stranger and you have a spare moment, PRAY FOR THAT PERSON! YOU CANNOT PRAY TOO MUCH and everyone in the world needs to be PRAYED FOR! Including your favorite actor, actress. Your favorite singer. Politicians, scientists, doctors. Be creative and even open up the telephone book and pray, pray, pray!

I know from personal experience that when I am tempted, if I will immediately go into UNCEASING PRAYER for the temptation to go away, that it will! I am 100% certain that you can resist the Devil through prayer.}

Those who really desire to live close to God, MUST, let me repeat, MUST TAKE THE HOLY SPIRIT FOR THEIR GUIDE. One of the main ways you do this is to PRAY ALWAYS, AND I WILL POUR OUT MY SPIRIT UPON YOU:
