At the close of a prayer meeting at church one night, the pastor observed a little girl about
twelve years of age remaining upon her knees, when most of the congregation
had already left. Thinking the child had fallen asleep, he touched her and
told her it was time to return home. To his surprise he found that she
was engaged in prayer, and he said: "All things whatsoever ye shall ask
in prayer, believing, ye shall receive." She looked up at the pastor
earnestly, and inquired: "Is that so? Does God say that?"


He took up a Bible and read the passage aloud. She immediately began
praying: "Lord, send my father here; Lord, send my father to the chapel."
Thus she continued for about half an hour, attracting by her earnest cry
the attentions of persons who had lingered about the door. At last a man
rushed into the chapel, ran up the aisle and sank upon his knees by the
side of his child, exclaiming: "What do you want of me?" She threw her
arms about his neck, and began to pray: "Oh, Lord, convert my father!"
Soon the man's heart was melted and he began to pray for himself. The
child's father was three miles from the chapel when she began praying
for him. He was packing goods in a wagon and felt impressed with an
irresistible impulse to return home. Driving rapidly to his house, he
left the goods in his wagon and hastened to the chapel, where he found
his daughter crying mightily to God in his behalf; and he was led there
to the Savior.
