As we look at men of prayer in history we find it true as Oswald Chambers said, “Prayer does not fit us for the greater works; prayer is the greater work.” We see how their prayer life was the great foundation for the power they had from God to minister.
In John 1:6 it tells us, “There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.” And just as John was sent from God, so also godly men in history were sent of the Lord. As Christians we have daily need to walk in prayer and one way to stir ourselves up to prayer is by looking at men of history. In this message Mack looks at men of prayer in history including John Knox, William C. Burns, Robert Bruce, Leonard Ravenhill and others.
