Bunyan on Prayer, Thought for the New Year

My friend Archie Parrish included this great thought from John Bunyan in his most recent prayer letter from Serve International. We would do well to heed it in the New Year.

"You can do no more than pray before you pray; but after you pray you must do more than pray." No wonder Bunyan, and Matthew Henry following him, loved the old Latin motto Ora et labora. Pray and work!

One could choose worse mottoes for the year to come. Let's make this one a byword for our congregation.
