I want you to learn the importance of prevailing in prayer. When I was in that communist prison, and the guards were cursing me, saying that I would never get out alive, I began to pray. This is how I prayed: 'O God, 2000 years ago, Paul and Silas were in prison, they prayed, and You caused an earthquake which broke open the prison doors and released their chains. O God, if You could do it 2000 years ago, I want You to do it now and set me free!' You know the story. God worked a miracle and sent the British Prime Minister. I want you to realise that You can have the same power with God when you prevail in prayer. This is what happened with Jacob in the Bible, he wrestled with God all night, toward morning he said, 'I will not let Thee go, except Thou bless me.' God responded, '...for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed' (Genesis 32:26-28).
