The Power Room
Hosea 12:6
Therefore turn you to your God: keep mercy and judgment and wait on your God continually.

The quietest room in a Lancashire cotton mill is the engine room. It is significantly called the "power room" of the mill. But from that quietest room emerges all the force which speeds the busy looms in their process of production. Let the engine be neglected, let countless looms be added without proportional increase of power, and. the mill breaks down. We have been neglecting our quietest room, our power room; we have been adding to the strain without multiplying the force, and the effects are seen in weariness, joylessness, and ineffectiveness. We must not work less, but we must pray more.

(Life of C. A. Berry, D. D.)
