Sermon Illustrations

Terry Waite spoke the following words at a Christian Booksellers Convention held at Bournemouth in March 1993:

"It is hard sometimes in prison to sit and to pray, and to read of those who were in prison, and to read of their prayer, and to how the prison door or roof cracked open, the chains were released and they walked out.

It’s hard when one has been for four years praying everyday and the door remains firmly locked and the chain remains firmly padlocked around one’s feet."
