Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that you may be healed…
A true Christian will value the intercession of the humblest believer. So did good Dr. Davenant, Master of Queen's College, Cambridge. Being appointed to the bishopric of Salisbury, and taking leave of the inmates of the college, he asked an old college servant, John Rolfe, to give him his prayers. The old man naturally replied that he had rather need of those of the bishop. "Yea, John," replied the latter, "and I need thine too, being now to enter into a calling wherein I shall meet with many and great temptations."
