2 Timothy 1:3
I thank God, whom I serve from my forefathers with pure conscience…
The Rev. I. F. Oberlin reserved stated hours for private prayer, which became known to the people; and it was usual for carters and labourers returning from the fields with talk and laughter to uncover their heads as they passed beneath the wails of his house. If the children ran by too noisily, these working people would check them with uplifted finger, and say, "Hush! he is praying for us."
(Sword and Trowel.)
