The Finger of God

Dr. H. C. Mason tells of the man who in prayer meeting prayed earnestly that God would with His finger touch a certain man. Suddenly he stopped his prayer. A brother asked him, "Why did you change your prayer?" He replied, "Because God said to me, `You are My finger.' So now I must go and touch the man for God."

Prayer for God's dealings with men is fundamental. If we do not wait upon Him before we go we shall be as the nine disciples who could not cast one demon out of the boy. But with the prayer must be our willingness to go at His bidding.

Some do not pray with a real care for those about who need God. Some pray but do not go. God would have us pray and go—The Free Methodist.
