The Power of Prayer - Richard Lovelace

The early church won the Roman Empire by the strength of its prayers, even though its theology was often weak and its morale was shaken by repeated waves of persecution. Pedestrians in Romans streets sometimes felt the walls shake from the "Amens!" of Christians in catacombs or hidden rooms. And eventually the walls of the empire collapsed like those of Jericho. (Dr. Richard Lovelace, Renewal as a Way of Life, pg. 172)

And when they had prayed, the place in which they were gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and continued to speak the word of God with boldness.(Acts 4:31)
