Brothers, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as you have us for an ensample.…
The conscience of a backsliding professor was smitten by the active and earnest efforts of a more faithful brother, whom he at length offered to assist in devotional services. To this objection was made by one who said, "I cannot hear him pray for me. His life does not pray. Let him repent of his unfaithfulness and confess to God and men, and then we will hear him." If we would have our prayers credited as sincere, our lives must be in accordance with them.
