Pastor Henry Mahan

Spurgeon once said, "I don't know which renders the greater service - the man who preaches or the man who prays, but I know this, we can do better without the voice than without the heart of prayer!" 

Blessed and happy is that assembly of redeemed people, brought together and baptized into one body by His Spirit, whose love for the Lord Jesus and for one another enables them to sing with one voice, pray with one heart, walk in one direction, and worship with one Spirit! Where each member realizes the importance of his presence, his prayers, his support, and his co-operation. Where Christ is Lord and all others are servants! Where the will of Christ is pre­eminent and all other wills and desires are in sub­jection! Where there are no young and old, rich and poor, educated and uneducated, but only Christ, who is all and in all. 

Pity and Pray For the Preacher

By Robert Trail, Scotland, 1642-1716 

Pastor Paul Mahan – "I took the liberty of putting the following article by Robert Trail in our modern language.  Brother Robert wouldn't mind. Some of the old preachers and writers spoke in a way that is hardly understood in this modern day. I love the old brethren and wouldn't dream of misquoting or misrepresenting them.  Brother Trail wrote a lengthy article on 1 Timothy 4:16; an address to preachers.  It was a great blessing and highly instructive to me.  He then ended his address to preachers with a brief note to the people; which follows. . ." 

Pity us (the preacher).  We are not angels, but men of like passions with yourselves. Be more full of love than criticism.  We have enough troubles dealing with ourselves, along with trying to help you in your troubles.  We have all the difficulties which you have, and some you are not acquainted with (temptations and trials only ministers have). 

Help us in our work.  If you can do anything, help us.  What can you do?  O' a great deal. Just be a believer and we will rejoice. Seeing you in Heaven will be our joy and rejoicing. 

Pray for us.  How often and how earnestly doth Paul beg the prayers of the churches!  And if he did so, much more do we need your prayers . . . for our necessities and weaknesses are greater than Paul's. 

"Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the Word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you: and that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men: for all men have not faith." (2 Thessalonians 3:1-2) 


Thomas Kelly –

Blessed day of solemn meetings;

Blessed day of praise and prayer;

Far from earthly cares retreating,

In Thy blessings we would share.


Be Thou near us, precious Saviour,

In the morn and eve the same;

Give us faith which shall not waver,

Trusting only Thy great name.


In Thy name, O Lord, assembling,

We Thy people now draw near;

Teach us to rejoice with trembling,

Hear Thy word with godly fear.


While our days on earth are lengthened,

May we live them, Lord, in Thee,

Cheered by hope and daily strengthened,

'Til in heav'n Thy glory see!


(Tune: "Jesus Calls Us")



(Psalm 95:6-7)  "O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the Lord our maker. For He is our God; and we are the people of His pasture, and the sheep of His hand."
