    Tony – These are fine comments on the benefits and essentiality of prayer. Maybe we each know it, but they are so easy to overlook. I am glad you took the time to remind me. They are crucial truths.

    Thanks for the reminder Tony. God has been doing something new in my own prayer life after preaching a couple of weeks ago on Col 1:3-14.
