For ever

How long will the kingdom , power and glory be His? For ever, without intermission through eternity. Exodus 15:18.

James Fisher

We rejoice that our King reigns in providence and shall reign in grace . . . and [that] of His kingdom there shall be no end.

C.H. Spurgeon

Bible Proof Texts: Psalm 72:17-19, Revelation 4:8-11


Why do we say Amen in our prayers? In testimony of our desire, and assurance to be heard.

James Fisher

Desire is the life and power of prayer . . . The assurance . . . is the assurance that what we ask we shall receive, because God has so promised.

Alexander Whyte

Faith has its silence to lend an ear to the Word of God. Afterwards it has its turn to speak and answer Amen, according to that passage, Hosea 2:23 – “And I will say to them which were not my people, Thou art my people; and they shall say, Thou art my God.”

John Calvin


“There is no way that Christians, in a private capacity, can do so much to promote the work of God and advance the kingdom of Christ as by prayer.”

Jonathan Edwards
