Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said to Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brothers…
John Elias was called to preach a great association sermon at Pwllheli. In the whole neighbourhood the state of religion was very low, and distressingly discouraging to pious minds, and it had been so for many years. Elias felt that his visit must be an occasion with him. It may almost be said of that day that "he prayed, and the heavens gave rain." He went. He took as his text, "Let God arise, let His enemies be scattered." It was an astonishing time. While the preacher drove along with his tremendous power, multitudes of the people fell to the ground. Calm stood the man, his words rushing from him like flames of fire. There were added to the churches of that immediate neighbourhood, in consequence of the impetus of that sermon, two thousand five hundred members.
