The great importunity of Sir Walter Raleigh, court favorite during part of the reign of good Queen Bess, wearied Queen Elizabeth. One day, when he came to ask a fresh favor from her, she turned and said, 'Raleigh, when will you cease to be a beggar?' Immediately came Raleigh's reply, `When your Majesty ceases to be a benefactress and to grant me favors.'

(Matt. 7. 7; John 16. 23, 24; Phil. 4. 6).
