God expects us to pray and seek Him for the lost souls of men. Our prayers include Covenanters who are out in the field. All these places are spiritually dark. Only prayer can break through the strongholds and darkness.
“A marble cutter, with chisel and hammer, was changing a stone into a statue. A preacher looking on said: ‘I wish I could deal such changing blows on stony hearts.’ The workman answered: ‘Maybe you could, if you worked like me, upon your knees.’” – A. T. Pierson (pastor, missionary)
