In answer to a cry from John G. Lake’ heart, an angel of the Lord came to him, took the Bible and opened it to the book of Acts.
He called attention to the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost, and then proceeded through the book pointing out the great, outstanding revelations and phenomena in it.
Then the angel spoke these words: “This is Pentecost as God gave it through the heart of Jesus.
“STRIVE FOR THIS. CONTEND FOR THIS. TEACH THE PEOPLE TO PRAY FOR THIS”
For this, and this alone, will meet the necessity of the human heart, and this alone will have the power to overcome the forces of darkness.” As the angel was departing, he said: PRAY. PRAY . PRAY. Teach the people to pray. Prayer and prayer alone, much prayer, persistent prayer, is the door of entrance into the heart of God.
