"I have been hungry for the last few days to get with a small group like this that believes in prayer. Our Lord has so few to follow His thoughts through with Him. If we become more like Him, then the circle will reach around the world. The greatest failure of the Christian Church is that 'we try to save our own souls at all costs.' The further out the needs of Humanity are the less concerned we are! Make us bigger...in the circle of our praying, love, interest, and thought. [Dr. Frank had started to pray, but then returned to the listeners.] We have an ever-growing confidence through experience because prayer -- when we are honest and willing to be used -- is the mightiest power in the world. ...If we follow through prayer with our lives, we are then irresistible. If we open up to Him, open the center of ourselves out to Him and if we open ourselves down and out to the world, then we let Him flow through. Then and then only do we become channels. Otherwise we are mere trickles of power and service."
