Billy Sunday tells of a minister who was making calls. He came to a certain home and asked for the mother but the child opening the door answered, "You cannot see mother for she prays from nine to ten."
He waited forty minutes to see that mother, and when she came out of her prayer closet the light of glory was on her face, and he knew why that home was so bright; he knew why her two sons were in the ministry and her daughter a missionary.
"All hell cannot tear a boy or girl away from a praying mother," comments Mr. Sunday. Susanna Wesley, with seventeen children, spent one hour each day shut up with God alone in her room, praying for them - and her two sons, under Godís control, brought revival to England while France weltered in the blood of a ghastly revolution.
