July 27: Prayer for the salvation of children

The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

2 Peter 3:9

Daniel Whittle shares the account of Mrs. C. S. Whitney:

In regard to the conversion of souls, many times prayer has been answered immediately.

At one time, in a little prayer meeting, a desire was given me for the speedy conversion of several children present. After some conversation and prayer, we agreed that, each in our own home, the next morning, at nine o’clock, should ask God to bless and save. At our next meeting, ten of the children gave evidence of a change of heart; which had occurred at that very hour.
