FAITH OF SINNERS IN PRAYER
A certain preacher whose sermons converted many souls received a
revelation from God that it was not his sermons or works by all means but the
prayers ofan illiterate lay brother who sat on the pulpit steps
pleading for the success of the sermon. It may be in the all-revealing day so
with us. We may believe after laboring long and wearily that all honor belongs
to another builder whose prayers were gold, silver, and precious stones, while
our sermonizings being apart from prayer are but hay and stubble.—Rev. C. H. Spurgeon.
