"In spite of Satan, pray; spend hours in prayer; rather neglect friends than not pray; rather fast, and lose breakfast, dinner, tea and supper - and sleep too - than not pray. And we must not only talk about prayer; we must pray in right earnest. The Lord is near. He comes softly while the virgins slumber."
