"Almighty God, let Thy divine power so strengthen our weakness, that neither the craft of the devil, nor the allurements of the world, nor the evil desires of our own hearts, may prevail against us, but that we may in all things be more than conquerors through Him that loved us.

"Onward, ye elect of God! Victory is before you; your very safety lies in that direction. To retreat is to perish. . . .

The only course open to us is to plough right on to the end of the furrow, and never think of leaving the field till the Master shall call us home." - C. H. Spurgeon
