I had a dream this morning at 2:30...I awoke and wrote it down. Dr. Young,repparttar pastor of our First Baptist church, invited me to preach. As I was going up torepparttar 125387 pulpit, he handed me a letter from Dr. Martin, a foreign missionary whorepparttar 125388 church sponsored. The church lights were dimmed and a faint light shone onrepparttar 125389 faint I could barely read it. I asked Dr. Young if he wanted me to readrepparttar 125390 report and he said yes. The writing was illegible and I could not make sense out of it. I looked up and toldrepparttar 125391 audience to bear with me, this "Doctor" writing was hard to read. The Lord wanted me to go on withrepparttar 125392 message so I said, "O, well,repparttar 125393 Lord's will be done".

Then I began to preachrepparttar 125394 messagerepparttar 125395 Lord had given me. I said "Inrepparttar 125396 beginning, God created everything. He isrepparttar 125397 Creator!" Then I said, "God created prayer." As I begin to speak on prayer,repparttar 125398 members ofrepparttar 125399 church got up and started walking out byrepparttar 125400 droves. Dr. Young was embarrassed by this andrepparttar 125401 look on his face said "Oh, I hope I didn't make them mad by asking you to preach." He looked like he was torn between wanting me to preach about prayer and pleasingrepparttar 125402 crowd.

I said torepparttar 125403 crowd, "Where are y'all going?" They paid no attention to me and kept filing out. Only one man,repparttar 125404 Vice President of our local bank, turned to me and said "I don't know what is wrong with these people; they need to hear that message on prayer."
