The Spiritual Barometer of a Church

"The prayer meeting is really a very excellent barometer of the spiritual maturity of any given church.  That's just a matter of fact.  You can tell how popular the church is by who comes on Sunday morning   and how popular the pastor or guest speaker is by who comes on Sunday night or for a special meeting.  But you can really find out how much the people really know God and  love Jesus by who will come just to  wait on the Lord in prayer."
