Bend your head in the dewy freshness of every morning, ere you go forth to meet the day's duties and perils, and wait for the benediction of Christ, as He lays His hands upon you. They are hands of blessing. Their touch will inspire you for courage, and strength, and all beautiful and noble living." - J. R. Miller, cited in "Alone With God."

These are the people today who are doing the most for God in winning souls, in solving problems, in awakening churches, in supplying both men and women for mission posts, in keeping fresh and strong their lives far off in sacrificial service on the foreign field, where the thickest fighting is going on, and in keeping the old earth sweet a little while longer." - S. D. Gordon in "Quiet Talks on Prayer."
