Things to be Prayed

 

Prayer

The brother of a seminary student came to visit him one day. Unsure of directions, he turned to the first person who passed by and asked, “Is this Davidson Hall?” One hearing the man described later, the seminary student asked his brother if he had realized that he had been talking to a world-famous theologian.
