Asking Great Things

A letter from the pen of Mary Winslow (1774-1854) to a friend about the blessing of prayer. No date given.

I have been asking great things; and while He held out the scepter, my heart was full, and my mouth opened wide to supplicate much, for all God has given me. Oh, what a mighty privilege is the believer’s, to have personal interviews, holy intercourse with the God of heaven! Highly favoured are we. May we never lose sight of it, but ask much, and expect what we ask for!
