From above the horse gate repaired the priests, every one over against his house.
Once upon a time many Christians gathered to pray for a revival in the great city in which they lived. For a week they prayed, "O Lord, revive the city!" but the heavens were as brass. For some weeks they continued to pray almost as broadly and indefinitely, until one friend, who felt the need of individual quickening, exclaimed, "O Lord, revive Thy work in my heart! O Lord, revive me!" There was a general breaking at the conclusion of this prayer. Personal revival was sought and vouchsafed, and the work soon became widespread and deep. A Baptist Church in New York once sought for the gracious influences of the Holy Spirit, but there was no consciousness of response or blessing till a coloured brother, devout and earnest, respected and beloved by all, got down upon his knees, and, with choked utterance, prayed in the language of the 51st Psalm.
