What Has Prayer Done?

Prayer has divided seas, rolled up flowing rivers, made flinty rocks gush into fountains, quenched flames of fire, muzzled lions, disarmed vipers and poisons, marshaled the stars against the wicked, stopped the course of the moon, arrested the rapid sun in its great race, burst open iron gates, recalled souls from eternity, conquered the strongest devils, commanded legions of angels down from Heaven. Prayer has brought one man from the bottom of the sea, and carried another in a chariot of fire to Heaven. What has prayer not done?
