“‘Edith, I wonder what would happen to most churches and Christian work if we awakened tomorrow, and everything concerning the reality and work of the Holy Spirit, and everything concerning prayer, were removed from the Bible.  I don’t mean just ignored, but actually cut out – disappeared.  I wonder how much difference it would make?’  We concluded it would not make much difference in many board meetings, committee meetings, decisions and activities.”

Edith Schaeffer, The Tapestry (Waco, 1981), page 356.

    I desire the Holy Spirit of God to fill me and empower me for His work. I am through going on in talent alone and without Him. Please pray for me. Thank you in advance.
