- “Lord, when my soul is weary and my heart is tired and sore and I have that failing feeling that I can’t take any more; then let me know the freshening found in simple, childlike prayer, when the kneeling soul knows surely that a listening Lord is there.” Ruth Bell Graham, Sitting By My Laughing Fire, written at age 14 (from the Billy Graham Library Facebook page, January 10, 2014)
P.S. If you have 30 minutes, here’s the interview I watched. Ruth Bell Graham is interviewed by her daughter. Her story is an encouragement to us as parents and followers of God.
