“I look at a stonecutter hammering away at a rock 100 times without so much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the 101st blow it splits in two. It was not the one blow that did it, but all that had gone before. So it is with persevering prayer.” – George Muller

Luke 24:49 “And, behold, I (Jesus) send the promise of My Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.
