A preacher asked me one time, "Tommy, do you really mean that?"
I said, "You don't know how much I mean that."
"You mean that if you had your way," he continued, "you would really want to turn every service into a prayer meeting?"
I said, "Oh, yes, because I have a whole lot more to say to Him than I do to anybody else." I say that because I have never yet seen, heard, or read about any preaching meeting that triggered a major outbreak of God. Preaching may have occurred in the process, but the fire broke out first at prayer meetings. It happened that way on the day of pentecost in the book of Acts, in the Great Awakenings, on Azusa Street, in Great Britain's New Hebrides Islands, and in South America.,'
That is why I often tell people in our meetings, "If at some point the whisper of God's voice to your heart gets louder than my amplified voice up front, then just tune me out. Find a place where you can go after it with Him. If this whole auditorium turns into a prayer meeting, then it is possible that your entire city may be transformed into an altar." I confess to you that this is the very thing I'm after. How about you?
