Keep On Praying

Read 1 Thessalonians 5:17

Gypsy Smith, the great evangelist, was converted when he was a boy. He loved his grandfather, and he tried to win him to the Lord.

Not being allowed to talk to his grandfather, he prayed for his conversion.

One day the grandfather asked, “Laddie, why are the knees of your trousers so badly worn?”

“Because I’ve been praying for your conversion,” he explained.

Weeping, he knelt with the boy, and received the Lord.

Have you ever worn out your trousers by praying for the conversion of your family and friends?

Try it, won’t you?

Prayer: O God, all through today make me brave enough to follow Thee, strong enough to witness for Thee, and convincing enough to win souls to Thee. Constrain me to pray persistently for the conversion of my family and friends: through Christ. Amen.
